Letter to President George W. Bush Re: Gasoline Prices

While we are ready to embrace potential short-term solutions to the problem of rising gasoline prices, long-term thinking and dedication – and presidential leadership – are sorely needed to tackle this issue in a balanced manner. Taking the actions we have outlined in this letter will moderate prices somewhat in the short-term, especially if they are coupled with pressure on foreign oil suppliers to increase production. More importantly, these actions can have a significant long-term impact.
