By 2030, 95% of U.S. car miles traveled will be in self‐driving, electric, shared vehicles. Shared self driving cars will be 4-10x cheaper / mile than buying a new car, and 2-4x cheaper than operating an existing paid-off vehicle. Global oil demand will peak at 100M barrels / day by 2020, dropping to 70M barrels / day by 2030 (same as 1995). Productivity gains as a result of reclaimed driving hours will boost GDP by an additional $1 trillion. the number of passenger vehicles on American roads will drop from 247M to 44M, opening up vast tracts of land for other, more productive uses.
