Who Should Help Reduce U.S. Dependence On Oil?

DETROIT (WWJ) – About once a decade, there’s a big fight to force car companies to do more to reduce our dependence on oil. But what about all the other industries that use oil?

The government is now pushing the auto industry to hit a corporate average fuel economy of 56.2 miles per gallon. Not surprisingly, just about every auto maker says it cannot hit that average.

Although the U.S. has had fuel economy standards for 33 years, we now use more oil than we ever have.

Isn’t it about time we ask other sectors of society to do their share?
