The US Department of Energy is going big-time into more, not fewer, vehicles on the road

today launched a pilot project to incorporate electric vehicles and technologies into the Federal fleet.

Furthering the Administration’s goals to cut oil imports by one-third by 2025 and to put one million advanced vehicles on the road by 2015, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum today directing agencies to implement government wide fleet management practices that will ensure the Federal Government is leading by example in fuel efficiency and innovative technology.

It would be far better to have 1 million fewer vehicles on the road. The federal government could lead the way, using the internet to work out carpooling that works, as an example of how to get this going.
