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. What were some responses from around the green car web?

This article by AP writer Nancy Benac focuses on the presidential candidates in the United States and the cars they drive. She makes a convincing case that some American politicians are eager to make greener driving a key part of their public side because citizens care what they drive/ride in. Of course, we know it's not just national candidates or even American politicians who are going down the same road in hybirds and biodiesel buses, etc.
