Iowa Urged to Switch to Fuel-Efficient Fleet
state government could save about $91,000 next year by beginning to buy the most fuel-efficient cars and trucks each year to replace its worn-out gas-guzzlers, according to a new report being released today by a faith-based environmental group.
"What Should the Governor Drive?," a report by the Iowa Interfaith Climate and Energy Campaign, estimated the state could cut its gasoline consumption by 65,040 gallons. The savings calculation is is based on gas prices of $1.40 per gallon.
If the state got a good deal and paid only $1 per gallon in future years, the savings would rise to a cumulative $3.3 million by 2013."We're focusing on the entire state vehicle fleet, not just Gov. Vilsack's car," said Mary Holmes of Madrid, coordinator of the campaign. "Fuel-efficient vehicles will conserve energy, protect God's creation and save the state millions of dollars."
