The US Clean Cities program has displaced 0.214% of US road fuel demand in 2008, according to figures relased by the organisation which show that a total of 384m gal were reduced from a total of all road fuel of 174 930 m gal in 2006 (the last year for which figures are available) at a cost of $132m. That’s $0.35/gal reduction.
Hardly sustainable, but the Clean Cities Program has the equivalent of
a national network of 48 full-time technical sales professionals working to reduce U.S. dependence on oil.equivalent to 48 full time sales professionals across the US
This post is not about disparaging the work that this dedicated bunch of people do, but to point out that it is compoletely inadquate to the task in hand. How many people are there selling oil in the US? How much funding do they get? What i wonder is the total number of people working to reduce oil dependency in the US?
