To appropriately mitigate environmental impacts from transportation, it is necessary for decision makers to consider the life-cycle energy consumption and emissions associated with each mode. A life-cycle energy, greenhouse gas, and criteria air pollutant emissions inventory is created for the passenger transportation modes of automobiles, urban buses, heavy rail transit, light rail transit, and aircraft in the U.S. Each mode's inventory includes an assessment of vehicles, infrastructure, and fuel components. For each component, analysis is performed for material extraction through use and maintenance in both direct and indirect (supply chain) processes.... 4Runner 103, 830 Dodge Dakota 104, 051 10 Ford Focus 184, 825 Chevrolet Suburban 87, 011 Nissan Titan 86, 945 11 Ford Mustang 160, 975 Jeep Wrangler 79, 017 Nissan Frontier 72, 838 12 Chrysler 300 Series 144, 048 Nissan Pathfinderanbsp;...
