Finally, someone’s using the ‘C’ word

‘C’ as in ‘conservation.’  This one must’ve snuck past the business editors… or perhaps the paid censors from the oil industry were on coffee break when it was posted.  :-)

Want to help the country save a quick million barrels of oil a day? Drive 5% less. Slow down. Inflate your tires.

Those three steps would reduce U.S. oil consumption by 1.3 million barrels a day immediately, according to the Alliance to Save Energy, a conservation group running an efficiency campaign backed not only by environmental groups but also the auto and oil industries.

That’s nearly twice the estimated daily oil production that could come from drilling in the Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, according to the government’s Energy Information Administration.

Shocking stuff, I tell you.   Stating that using less energy, or just using it more wisely, seems contrary to the American way of life.

    All Washington has to do is reduce the work week to four days, 32 hours, and high gasoline prices will disappear.

    If the guy you are supporting for president isn’t supporting a four day work week, he cannot be trusted with your vote.

    It is that simple.
