George Bush Encourages Car pooling?!

What? Perhaps the first shock I received on my trip to Las Vegas was seeing the front page headline of the Financial Times indicating the President Bush was encouraging energy conservation and car pooling. A similar headline appeared on the front page of the Boston Globe's Business section. What a minute. Didn't he just work hard to pass an energy bill that continues to subsidize oil and coal and work on increasing supply instead of reducing demand? What's going on here? Did the bankruptcy filings of two more airlines and the crippling of gasoline production in the gulf coast cause this? What gives? Is this for real?

The story made The Guardian as well
