Energy Efficiency

Alliance to Save Energy president explains the consumer response to energy prices

President Bush recently urged consumers to reduce their use of gasoline, in an attempt to lessen demand for gasoline after hurricanes Katrina and Rita damaged Gulf Coast oil facilities. Does Bush's call for conservation suggest a new approach on energy at the White House? Or will Bush and Republican leaders in Congress focus solely on building new oil refineries and opening up new areas to energy exploration? Kateri Callahan, president of the Alliance to Save Energy, talks about energy legislation moving through the House and Senate and the potential for a fuel economy increase. Plus, she explains what consumers are doing to lessen their energy use and the role for the Department of Energy.
