Is Driving Destroying Our Economy?

Looking for the old results?
Driving cars has been linked with cancer and contributes to global warming, but does it do damage to our economy as well?

Foreign oil reliance is continuing to grow. U.S. consumers currently send over $200,000 every minute overseas to buy oil. We cannot simply drill our way out of the current gasoline supply woes; attempting to do so will only increase the severe environmental impacts of driving and we don't have enough domestic oil to make a significant dent in prices. Opening the Arctic wildlife refuge today won't produce oil for another 8-10 years, and even then will only be a drop in the bucket compared to our demand. Since sending money outside the US in no way helps the US make MORE money, doesn't this seem like a way US citizens are losing money and hurting our own economy?
