DGA authored a report for the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC) on state by state gasoline price issues. This report updates the 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 research by the NRDC identifying the states whose citizens feel the greatest economic pain from gasoline prices and those states that are doing the most to break their addiction to oil. Like the previous editions, this report again ranks U.S. states in two critical areas related to our nation’s continuing addiction to oil. First, it calculates gasoline price vulnerability—the percentage of personal income spent on gasoline by the average driver in each state. Second, it ranks states based on their adoption of solutions to reduce their oil dependence—measures they are taking to lessen their vulnerability and to bolster America’s security.
