Obama to announce plan to help his friends at GE and Chevrolet even more.
Obama has been busy making backroom deals with his buds. Obama is promising that the federal government will purchase only alternative-fuel vehicles, such as hybrid and electric cars, by 2015

.Obama to Outline Energy Plan

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama, under pressure to respond to rising gas prices, on Wednesday will outline initiatives to cut U.S. reliance on foreign oil, including plans to expand oil production, increase the use of natural gas in vehicles and boost ethanol production.

He also is promising that the federal government will purchase only alternative-fuel vehicles, such as hybrid and electric cars, by 2015.

Mr. Obama's latest attempt to take the initiative on energy policy comes as Republicans in Congress are stepping up criticism of the administration for not allowing more oil and gas drilling in the U.S. On Tuesday, House Republicans said they would introduce legislation requiring the administration to sell more offshore leases and to issue drilling permits within a set time frame.

The political heat over energy policy is rising in tandem with the price of gasoline and diesel fuels at filling stations, in a ritual that has become familiar in Washington since the oil-price shocks of the mid-1970s. "We've been having this conversation for nearly four decades now," Mr. Obama said during a March 11 news conference. "Every few years, gas prices go up; politicians pull out the same old political playbook, and then nothing changes."

With all his talk and promises like lowering fuel costs for Govt Vehicles. His Administration has increasingly used more and more fuel, more than ANY previous administration and the last year had the highest percentage increase in fuel consumption ever. IOW, he is a hypocrite
