This article examines how personal habits related to energy consumption both in a domestic setting and during day-to-day transport use are initially acquired and how they subsequently develop; it also focuses on the nature of the changes that have occurred since the latest jump in energy prices. The analysis presented here draws on the findings of the socio-anthropological component of the TransEnergy research project, financed by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche as part of the Villes Durables (Sustainable Cities) programme, which examined the impact of energy price rises on households living and working in the peri-urban fringe zone of France's second city, Lyon.
