Letter: We need solutions to our oil dependence, not more political rhetoric

With gas prices teetering around $4 a gallon, the need for solutions to our oil dependence has never been clearer, but those solutions seem to be hidden by the current political rhetoric.

We have the technology to enact solutions that will curb our oil use and protect consumers from future price volatility. Individual drivers can take steps to cut their gas use today, but we also need a plan that cuts our long-term national oil use, not just until the end of the next gas price spike.

The Union of Concerned Scientists has developed a plan to cut America's projected oil consumption in half by 2030 by boosting the fuel economy of our vehicles, producing clean biofuels, expanding public transportation options, and investing in the next generation of advanced vehicles that no longer rely exclusively on oil.
