President's Speech - US needs to Improve Efficiency and Cut Greenhouse Gases

With gas prices at all time highs - The President spoke today about the country's dependence on foreign oil and how it poses a threat to National Security. He went on to say that this is a pivotal moment in history as new technologies become available to improve the efficiency and help save the environment. He re-iterated his plan and intent to cut gasoline use by 20% over the next 10 years. With increased fuel efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced. He said he would direct the EPA and Department of Transport to work on the goal of gas consumption and had signed an executive order for them to work together on this proposal. His 20 in 10 goal is on the table to be moved up to 2008
