Additional information

A correlation between decreasing fuel prices and high transport volume growth is clearly visible. This does not imply that price development in itself can explain the transport volume development, but clearly indicates that price is likely to have played a role. NB: For the EU-15, except theUnited Kingdom, Denmark, Austria, Finland, Luxemburg and Sweden, because of lack of data on share of diesel and petrol in fuel sales.
