Delightful: Lower consumption of fossil fuels

Last updated: May 3, 2016

By , Insure.com

Lower gas prices

Remember Google's claim that humans are imprecise drivers when compared to their computers? Those same shaky human habits are also costly when it comes to fuel consumption. Drivers who accelerate too hard and brake needlessly (perhaps you've seen them) burn more fuel than drivers who are lighter on the gas and brake pedals. But even the best human drivers are likely to fall short when compared to the rigorous perfection of computer systems.

A report from the Intelligent Transportation Society of America projects that intelligent transportation systems could reduce oil consumption by 2 to 4 percent over the next 10 years. That may seem modest, but given that U.S. vehicles consume roughly 378 million gallons of gasoline each day - or about 137 billion gallons a year - a 4 percent reduction would mean about 5 billion fewer gallons of gasoline consumed in the U.S. each year.
