Leaders of GM, Ford and the Chrysler Group will finally meet with Pres. Bush in November. The confab has been postponed twice. A White House spokesperson said the meeting will be mid-November but no specific date has been set. It won't be before the elections to avoid political baggage dragging down the agenda. Incentives for alternative-fuel vehicles are likely to be a hot topic.
Speaking in St. Louis at the 2006 Advancing Renewable Energy conference on Thursday, President George W. Bush said the country is too dependent on oil and warned us not to let low gas prices "mask that concern."
