We’re In Last Place


Though last place is very good in this case. According to the California Energy Commission, DC has the lowest per capita gas consumption. At 214.4 gals/person, DC is well below half the national average of 470.6.

Congratulations DC for getting the lead out. Granted it’s in the water supply now, but it’s a start.

  1. Finally something where being the only all-urban place among those being compared helps us rather than hurts us. Comparing a city with states rarely makes things look good for the city, even if cities within the states might be worse. I’m perfectly willing to give up this line of complaint, but only if DC becomes a state.
