Our vehicles are an extension of who we are. They’re our ticket to the open road, giving us a sense of freedom and the ability to explore the country both near and far. But with the rising concern for global warming and the need to reduce our carbon footprints, there’s one fundamental change taking place with the way we travel, and that’s electric cars.
Since President Trump withdrew the USA from the Paris Agreement, we thought it would be a good time to look at just how much petrol the USA uses when compared with other large economies.
It may not surprise you that the USA ‘leads’ the world in terms of petrol usage. But it may surprise you when you see just how much petrol they use when compared with other major economies.
The USA uses 19,396,000 barrels of petrol per day. That’s enough to fill the Empire State Building almost 3 times over.

“Cohousing communities are communities organised collaboratively. Residents have their own private spaces but band together to share meals and facilities, organise activities and look out for each other.
The focus is on community. All that’s required is a neighbourhood where people want to band together, take care of one another and collaborate for the good of all.”

Air pollution has a variety of contributors from stationary sources, like factories and power plants, to natural sources, like forest fires and dust storms. Air pollution has been shown to have a direct link with health. Those living in areas with high levels of air pollutants have a 20% higher risk of death from lung cancer. It can also cause respiratory inflammation, asthma, and ear infections.
The good news is, air quality in the U.S. is improving, however there’s still a good amount of progress to be made. You and your family can help decrease air pollution by making simple changes in your home. From replacing a wood stove with an EPA-certified model to turning off the lights when you leave a room—you can have an impact on the quality of the air.
