Check out a terrific newly released Next 10 report, Unraveling Ties to Petroleum: How Policy Drives California's Demand for Oil, authored by UCA experts Juan Matute and Dr. Stephanie Pincetl. The complete body of research identifies 15 California policies and their connection to the demand for petroleum. Each policy brief can be found online at www.next10.org, along with an Executive Summary that provides an overview of all 15 policies.

The top five policies found to be the most impactful in terms of driving petroleum demand in California, including policies that govern how parking spaces are created and subsidized, how road space is allocated, how local governments fund infrastructure needed for infill development, and how automobile insurers charge premiums, could reduce future petroleum use in California by at least 25 percent.
