Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Naturally, you can't extrapolate that 12% figure for the US. And besides it doesn't seem a reasonable value at all, even for the UK. Electric engines could easily cut in half the energy needs for Transport, but even so, that would be half of a very big number. And there's also the load balancing issue.

Do you know how much oil does the UK spend on its Transport sector?

Another thing to note is that while energy efficiency can be improved with some easy in Transport, that's not exactly the case for the Industrial or Housing sectors, that have already made significant changes. There's room to improve, but how much?
