Low Carbon Transportation:  A Crucial Link to Economic and

Petroleum dependence is a serious economic and national security
problem for the U.S.  High levels of consumption and imports,
coupled with the use of monopoly power in global oil markets and
a historical lack of alternatives, have imposed significant costs
on the U.S. economy.  

Today, direct economic costs from petroleum dependence are higher
than they were during the oil embargoes of the 1970s and are
estimated to have exceeded $2 trillion since 2005.  These costs
represent wealth transfer out of the country and lost economic
output due to monopoly pricing and price spikes.  (They do not
account for indirect costs related to congestion, defense, or
health impacts). 

Reducing petroleum dependence by transitioning to a low carbon
transportation system can generate hundreds of billions of
dollars annually in economic and national security benefits for
the U.S.  By greatly increasing energy efficiency and
substituting hydrogen, electricity and biofuels produced with low
net greenhouse gas emissions, the U.S. can develop a sustainable
and diverse transportation system while fostering a crucial link
to economic and national security.
