Responding to OCS Drilling Decision, Advocacy Group Challenges President to "Get Serious" About Energy Independence and Security

Energy Alternatives for the 21st Century challenges President Obama to devise an energy independence plan that goes beyond OCS drilling and that includes the "Open Fuel Standard" measure that then-candidate Obama supported during the presidential campaign.

Passing that bill would give consumers an alternative to burning gasoline in their cars by requiring Detroit to build "flexible fuel" cars that could run on a variety fuels. Although then-candidate Obama said that every car in America should be built that way, President Obama has been silent on the issue.

According to a report issued by EPA during President Obama's first year in office, such an Open Fuel Standard could put 177 million flexible fuel cars on the road in a decade, and would reduce consumption of foreign oil by nearly 25%. To put that impact in perspective this single simple measure -- the Open Fuel Standard -- would have 50 times the impact of the Administration's weatherization program.

It is important to stress that the plans that the Administration has laid out so far for
