America is severely addicted to fuel, and we’re not helping with our low gas prices and federal funding for highways instead of public transit. Think your gas prices are high? Residents of Turkey shell out $10 per gallon at the pump. We’re paying little in comparison – falling $2.72 below the international average gas price – but our impact isn’t small at all. Our cars drive 7 billion miles and use up 18 million barrels of fuel in a single day – a full third of the world total of 53 million barrels per day. How long can this continue?
