This study develops a comprehensive baseline for the life cycle of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions generated by conventional petroleum-based transportation fuels in the United States. The results of this study benchmark the performance of transportation fuels with respect to climate impacts in each of the fuels' life cycle stages; emphasizing opportunities to lower life cycle GHG emissions present in each stage.
