The "Truck Fuel Efficiency: Trends, Challenges and Emerging Technologies" report has been added to's offering.

Growing oil demand has led to considerable volatility in fuel prices since the beginning of the 21st century. Recent rises in crude oil and automotive fuel prices underline the potential for disrupting operator business models and growing political risks mean the issue looks as if it will remain critical in the coming years.
