A recent statistic stated that transportation is responsible for 30% of greenhouse gas pollution in the United States. As we move forward, we need to make sure that we reduce this source of pollution through creating livable communities, making public transportation options more accessible, and building a 21st century transportation system in California.
Having livable communities where people do not need to rely on driving will reduce pollution and househould expenditures, and move us away from our dependence on oil. All Californians will benefit with alternative transportation choices and the option to not spend 20% of their income each year on transportation.
-- that's roughly 557 million gallons of oil used for transportation each day.
