As urban density increases, per capita energy consumption decreases.  Additionally, culture plays a big role in how efficient transport systems and how dense cities are.  American cities are not dense and consume more energy per capita.  Asian cities are most dense and consume much less energy per capita.  Australian cities aren’t as bad as their American counterparts but follow their basic model.  European cities occupy the space between Asia and North America with fairly dense – and older – cities and low per capita levels of transport related energy consumption.
