Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) measures to reduce energy use by trucks have been limited because the Commission is guided by its traditional regulatory objectives of protecting existing regulated truckers and making certain that service is adequate.

The ICC does not have enough information on energy conservation measures to use in its decisionmaking. Energy conservation programs for surface transportation will have only limited success until a National policy clearly establishes the relative priority of energy conservation and regulatory objectives.
