Charles Fishmans error #1: the oil crisis didnt spur advances in fuel efficiency. Cars had become more efficient from generation to generation before the crisis, and after the crisis the pace didnt accelerate. It had already been at ma;Fumm.iishman’xs error #2: the comparison doesnt work. If a car becomes more efficient due to a technological advance not because its smaller or has less HP or some other lack it doesnt affect/reduce our living style/our well-being. If we start to use less water/change our habits, it does affect it.
