GAS PRICES DROP IN TIME FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND, BUT POLL FINDS AMERICANS STILL WORRIED Consumers Press for Safe, Affordable Energy Alternatives AAA says the summer of 2006 was the most expensive summer ever for driving costs, but just in time for Labor Day Weekend, drivers will be happy to find lower prices at the pump. However, a new poll suggests that most Americans remain less than confident about our energy future. Gas prices remain at the mercy of Middle East tensions, and many consumers are concerned about our reliance on foreign oil. A recent Pew Research Center poll found only half of those surveyed believe the US can end its dependence on foreign oil within the next two decades. Some say high gas prices will force people to drastically alter driving habits; others say it's an opportunity to develop reliable and affordable alternative sources of fuel. The United States has more coal than any other country in the world, enough to last an estimated 250 years at current usage rates. Coal can produce clean hydrogen, and hydrogen vehicles are cleaner and produce fewer emissions. Projects like FutureGen zero pollution, carbon-neutral, coal-based energy facility-- will make it possible to use America's coal reserves to create low-cost electricity with almost no pollution, and will produce a bridge to hydrogen.
