With summer travel season upon us, the NAM caught wind of a very well-timed petition to ask the President to deem August “National Fuel Economy Month,” the official awareness month for fuel efficiency. 25,000 signatures are needed to get the White House to act on the petition. We’ve got a long way to go but there is still time to act.
The resurgence of the automobile industry is one of manufacturing’s biggest success stories. Automobile manufacturers are creating compelling new products with improved performance and greater fuel efficiency. They are doing it in a number of different ways: more efficient engines, clean diesel, hybrid technology, natural gas, fuel cells and plug-in electric vehicles, among others.
The automobile industry is doing its part to save energy and reduce emissions, and creating jobs in the process. If you want to sign the petition, you can access it here.
