(CNN) - President Barack Obama continues his clean energy push Friday by announcing a new National Clean Fleets Partnership that works with major companies to cut gasoline consumption by their trucks.
The program is part of Obama's plan announced Wednesday to reduce U.S. oil imports by a third by 2025.
What he means by "helping" is that he'll nudge (force) them into doing it. The media is so lame.
Sounds like something that would be a good candidate for a GOTea Party budget cut.
Mr. President. Don't forget the incentives to Buy American vehicles, which means that US auto makers need to get on the ball to meet the challenge.
Hey idiot Obuumie. The answer is to produce more oil along with conservation programs. You need to get on board with OUR drilling not Brazil's and everyone else's. Under your leadership gas prices have doubled from $1.79 a gallon to $3.58 with no in end sight. All food products have gone up as well but we don't have inflation because Obummie doesn't include food and energy prices. Anyone but Obummie in 2012 !!!!!
This sounds like a step in the right direction. However, I can already see that business are going to want some sort of tax relief for transitioning their fleets.
Wow, yet another bogus group created by Obama. Seriously Liberals, even you have to be tired of all the made up organization this guy has created to supposedly help anyone but the government.
Local trucks from FedEx to furniture movers can convert to CNG dual fuel, the air is cleaner and less imported oil. It is the easiest and most productive change we can make for the better in the short run.
What a joke this guy is.....he flies all over the globe leaving his vacation carbon footprints everywhere yet he preaches green this, clean that. The guy should start practicing what he preaches.
"National Clean Fleets Partnership" (translated) Just one more way I will control the American people.
clean energy, fuel efficiency, education, infrastructure, stringent immigration, and audit on wealthy Tax cheats, medicare fraud check.......need this nation.....o.k.
Natural gas truck fleets at airports would be one idea.
