Release Date: Thursday, April 26, 2001

Statement by Alliance President David M. Nemtzow

"The Alliance to Save Energy commends President Bush for his recent remarks to media on the need for better fuel efficiency for vehicles and developing new technologies to save energy. We encourage the Administration's energy task force to recognize the need for increased fuel efficiency for cars, SUVs, and light trucks as a way to extend our nation's energy supply."

"As gasoline prices hit $2 a gallon-much higher than April government projections-approaching the heaviest summer driving season, it is clear that we must look not only to increasing energy supplies but also to using energy efficiency and basic energy consciousness as a way out of this energy crisis."
