You can't stop your life just because of high gas prices. We do many things over the course of a typical day that involve driving -- going to work, buying groceries and picking up kids from school. All these trips can really start to add up, especially when prices hover around $4 per gallon.
In March of this year, the average household spent $305 on gasoline, and that number is a hardship to many families. By September 30, President Obama will announce new fuel efficiency standards for cars and light trucks ranging between 47 and 62 miles per gallon by 2025.
Opponents are lobbying President Obama to adopt the weakest possible fuel efficiency standards. Help counteract these efforts by urging President Obama to set new fuel efficiency standards that will save American families money at the pump and decrease the amount of oil the United States imports from overseas. He needs to hear your voice!
Dear President Obama:
The rising price of gas is once again squeezing the budgets of American families, who are being forced to cut back in other areas to pay for basic transportation needs. Please take action to ensure that cars and light trucks can drive farther on a gallon of gas and reduce our dependence on imported oil.

This spring, you set a goal of reducing oil imports by one-third this decade. Fuels efficiency standards of up to 60 miles per gallon by 2025 would increase investments in fuel efficient technologies, save consumers money at the pump, and help the United States break its cycle of addiction to foreign oil by saving more than 1.3 billion barrels. I urge you to support new fuel efficiency standards of up to 60 miles per gallon.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
