Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday debuted a plan to ban sales of new gas-powered cars by 2035 with a goal of reducing the state’s air pollution and combating climate change. The executive order represents a big shift for car manufacturers and will likely change how many Californians get from point A to B.

So what does it all mean for the common California car owner? Here’s what you should know.

Can I keep my gas-powered car?

Short answer: yes. The governor’s office said Wednesday that the order will not prevent Californians from owning gasoline-powered cars.

How Sofia Coppola shot her Fast & Furious fantasy with Bill Murray in a convertible

Around the Table with ‘The Virgin Suicides’

The cast and director of The Virgin Suicides discuss the making of the film.

If, from inside the warm confines of a darkened megaplex playing the latest Fast & Furious sequel, you’ve ever leaned over to your best dudefriend during a wild chase scene and gently whispered, “Bro, I would like to see Sofia Coppola do this someday,” On the Rocks has just the scene for you!

Named after the twin sister of Apollo, she is the Goddess of the Moon, and we are the Artemis Generation.”

“NASA is delivering more missions, more science, and more innovation at a better value for the American taxpayer than at
