Gas price would drop .10-.25 cents
if the pResident quit taking deliveries to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve(SRP) so said Senator Collins(republican). And since the SRP is 92% filled, it would not jeopardize national security..


Have you heard any democrat's stating this today??

Peak oil is coming. The pukes will say Kerry is weak on defense if we do that.

2. CAFE standards, alternative fuel, tax penalties for gas guzzlers
put those in effect and you will make a serious dent.

pulling oil out of strategic petroleum reserve is a very short term fix and will only continue us on the road to disaster.

4. Those are Miles Per Gallon Standards Like 30MPG instead of 18MPG
Would save more fuel than ANWR could produce.

6. Here ya go:
CAFE

The Energy Policy Conservation Act, was enacted into law by Congress in 1975, and established Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards for passenger cars and light trucks. The Act was passed in response to the 1973-74 Arab oil embargo. The stated near-term goal was to double new car fuel economy by model year 1985.

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 required passenger car and light truck with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 8,500 lbs. or less manufactured for sale in the United States, to meet CAFE standards. The CAFE standards are applied on a fleet-wide basis for each manufacturer; i.e., the fuel economy ratings for a manufacturer's entire line of passenger cars must average at least 27.5 mpg for the manufacturer to comply with the standard. For light trucks (including vans and sport utility vehicles), which make up the majority of new vehicles sales, the 2004 CAFE standard is 20.7 mpg.
