Abstract—Energy parameters (fuel & energy consumption) in the transportation sector could be defined as the result of applying different policies in comprehensive sustainable management of the public and private transportation system. Validity assessment of stated and revealed preference survey in transportation planning can be often complicated task for planners, so using of a real preference survey has been proposed in this study. For preventing the current flaws in analysis of travel demand models provided by an activity-based approach or household travel behavior, fuel and energy consumption modeling has been proposed in this study. Presence of strong correlations between vehicle fuel usage and trip’s quantity by exogenous and endogenous variables has been proven in this study by monitoring refueling data for almost 15 years in Shiraz city of Iran. Models with specific emphasizing on fuel consumption and energy matters can be recognized as a suitable substitute for previous conventional models. Author’s new model was proposed using of energy parameters, which is part of socioeconomic data for increasing accuracy and accessibility. With modelling based on energy consumption if the amount of trip rate and car ownership level in Iran reaches those of in developed countries, the crisis of fuel consumption and transportation demand will happen. Therefor based on the concluded results applying strategies with substituting energy supply management to energy demand management would be wise action to improve overall performance of transportation sectors.

Index Terms—fuel consumption, transportation and traffic demand modeling, trip generation, trip attraction, trip quantity, tazs
