Obama Goal To Cut Oil Dependency By 33% Over Ten Years
President Obama promoted the goal of reducing our dependency on foreign oil by a third over the next ten years.
Obama laid out four areas to help reach his target of curbing U.S. dependence on foreign oil: lifting domestic energy production, fostering the use of more natural gas in vehicles like city buses, making cars and trucks more efficient, and boosting alternative energy by encouraging biofuels.
“We cannot keep going from shock to trance on the issue of energy security, rushing to propose action when gas prices rise, then hitting the snooze button when they fall again,” he told students at Georgetown University in Washington.
Republicans are not likely to get on board, especially as they perceive that high oil prices hurt Democrats in upcoming elections.Click here for reuse options!
