1. Regarding fuel, electric vehicles, and emissions:

Fuel

According to a March 15, 2022, article, the Energy Information Administration's "March 14 report showed a national average of $5.25, up from $4.849 a week ago. That national average is now $2.059 higher than it was one year ago."

That same article stated, "By region, California reported the largest increase (50.5 cents), and also has the highest price per gallon ($6.264)."

A March 17, 2022, article -- Some Georgia truck drivers say they are "not able to support" their families in wake of rising fuel prices -- quoted one trucker as saying: "You can't really live off of driving a truck like you used to... Right now, I am having to file bankruptcy."

Ouch!
