It cannot be denied that the greenhouse gas emissions have increases manifold along with the fears of its after-effects. To add to this, the oil prices are also soaring along with the increase in its demand.
To find a solution to this, U.S. automakers plan to double their production of flexible-fuel vehicles by 2010. The plan will add vehicles that are capable of running both on ethanol blends as well as other bio-fuels. This will surely reduce the country’s dependence on foreign oil.
The Big Three automakers who have produced 5 million flexible fuel vehicles capable of running on gasoline and fuel blends of up to 85 percent ethanol, have urged the oil companies and Congress for promoting ethanol and bio-fuel production, and increasing the number of service stations offering the fuels.
The Big Three automakers are expected to produce an additional 1 million of the vehicles this year. Adding this number, the commitment would lead to 2 million vehicle production annually by 2010.
