Taking an (enforced) break from the world wide web and blogging (and email, youtube…). As the blogposts (to be read) pile up my inbox there was one email (blog posting alert that is) that caught my attention. Subject: Gas Consumption: California vs. China, India. This post from Sepiamutiny.com throws an interesting and probably alarming statistic — That California consumes more Gasoline per year than China or India.
But, at least with transportation fuel, youâ€™d be wrong. California alone uses more gasoline than any country in the world (except the US as a whole, of course). That means Californiaâ€™s 20 billion gallon gasoline and diesel habit is greater than Chinaâ€™s! (Or Russiaâ€™s. Or Indiaâ€™s. Or Brazilâ€™s. Or Germanyâ€™s.)
