"Booze Gap"

Via Robert Farley, the USA is more sober than most European countries:

Farley deems this “a national disgrace.” Given prevailing land use patterns and automobile dependency, I say it’s a good thing Americans don’t drink very much. Indeed, Americans almost certainly drink too much relative to their transportation strategies. I think it’s an underrated problem. One that, obviously, I prefer to see solved on the land/transportation side.
