International Energy Agency proposes a ban on driving on Sundays
The International Energy Agency (IEA), an intergovernmental entity “committed to shaping a secure and sustainable energy future for all,” released a broad 10 point plan to reduce oil consumption in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s energy-sector-disrupting war in Ukraine.
The plan, which also proposes a reduction in speed limits and 3 days of home work per week, professes to reduce global oil consumption by up to 2.7 million barrels per day if implemented.
