Oil Check Washington

Shift Spreads Debunked Research on Twitter

Shift WA – a group that's been funded by WSPA in the past – is promoting misinformation on a clean fuels standard.

The gas price impact they cite is from a 2012 study done the Boston Consulting Group. The BCG study has been debunked by every peer-reviewed evaluation – including by an expert review at UC Davis that WSPA helped fund .

They wrote, "the report's full set of assumptions is unlikely and have concerns about certain aspects of the methodology used to calculate impacts."

Shift WA should stop spreading information from a debunked study.
