As reported by the US Energy Dept, the US consumed 18.8 million barrels of oil a day in 2009.

That’s just a number so it may be hard to know if that’s a lot.

Well, it means that every day in 2009 the US used more oil than
China
Japan
India
Russia….
combined.

When we think about ‘which country is best prepared for the transition to non-carbon transportation and economy?’
the US does not fare well right now.
There is no better time to discuss with your politicians the issues of transitioning out of a culture of oil.
