Growth in private car travel versus fuel efficiency in EU-27

Figure showing total km travelled by car in EU 27, total fuel consumption in EU 27, GDP development, and average fuel consumption per car. Between 1992-2007 savings through more efficient cars are clearly outweighed by a strong increase in km travelled, thus leading to growing overall consumption of fuel in EU 27 only partially decoupled from GDP.
