How cheap gasoline hurts the environment

M.E. Webber, June 2016 (Citation)


With cheaper gasoline, we’re again buying bigger cars and driving more, and our domestic production is leveling or dropping. That means increases in carbon dioxide emissions, gasoline consumption and imports. All of which feels like a step backward compared with the steady progress we had made for years with our energy, security and carbon dioxide policies. A sustained era of low gasoline prices means it will be harder to encourage conservation or to invite alternative transportation fuels such as biofuels, electricity or natural gas into the transportation sector.
