Analyst Urges Cure for Oil-Import Addiction
United States can easily end its addiction to imported oil by moving to automobiles that run on gasoline and alcohol or that can use a mixture of electricity and gasoline for power, a security and energy analyst said Wednesday.
"If we want to reduce our oil dependence, dependence on foreign oil, then we have to focus on the transportation sector," said <a href='http://www.evworld.com/view.cfm?section=article&storyid=770'>Anne Korin</a>, director of policy and strategic planning for the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security.
Korin was one of the speakers at the LSU Energy Center's Alternative Energy Conference. The two-day conference ends today. About 70 people attended the first day.
Two-thirds of the country's oil is used for transportation, mainly for gasoline and diesel, Korin said.
