article doesn’t seem very good. is it really a good idea to group in subsidies to consumers for cheap fuel vs. subsidies (and tax incentives) to corporations? If you cut the corporate welfare then oil prices would go up, and if you give strong wages (instead of just cheap fuel), and subsidize renewables, then you would see a huge swing to renewables and EV use. This article/study really misses the mark.

The “study” doesn’t mention the word “military” one single time, so is ignoring the single largest oil “subsidy” in the history of humanity – protecting oil assets around the world for the US.

also doesn’t mention per capita fuel use.

seems like the onus is never on the United States in these studies.
