Wall Street Journal on VMT, Energy, Sprawl
Wall Street Journal transportation columnist Joseph White just wrote an interesting piece on Vehicle Miles Traveled in America. Numbers show that VMT is growing at a much faster pace than population. This is do of course to suburbanization and lack of connectivity in the suburbs. White also condemns the common notion that increased fuel efficiency will solve our energy problems. It's encouraging to hear a mainstream news source tackle the interrelated issues of energy consumption, transit, and sprawl in a hollistic and critical manner.
