This week, President Bush gingerly took another step towards reducing some of the U.S.'s oil dependence by 2017. Bush directed his cabinet to get work done by the end of 2008 (so, in 18 months) on the president's plan to cut U.S. gasoline use by 20 percent by 2017.

As we said earlier today, President Bush met with the CEOs of America's domestic automakers to discuss the future of domestic vehicles in America and what types of alternative fuels will power those vehicles. Bush met with Chrysler Group president and CEO Tom LaSorda, Ford Motor Company president and CEO Alan Mulally, and General Motors chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner. The White House said the scheduled half-hour meeting went for 45 minutes. Toyota and other automakers were not invited.
