When Do the Excuses End?

Dear Friends of ROUSH CleanTech,

How high do gasoline prices have to climb before Americans have had enough? In Detroit, we are paying some of the highest prices ever at $4.18 per gallon. That’s higher than San Francisco at $3.97, but less than Chicago — at a whopping $4.48 per gallon.

I hear a lot of educated guesses when it comes to fuel cost spikes: “Spring cleaning” at the refineries. Mother Nature. High demand for summer-grade gasoline. Mid-east turmoil. The strong hold of OPEC.

When will we challenge the status quo? When will we realize that our country is sitting on an energy goldmine of our own with decades worth of propane and natural gas supplies? For a nation known for innovation and leadership, it continues to astonish me that we allow our wealth to be exported to other countries. And, in turn, compromise our own national security.

That’ll end when reliable, domestic and secure sources are at the forefront of transportation fuel. Readily available, domestic, low cost and abundant fuels like propane autogas.

Michigan’sFlint Mass Transit Authority saves $2.49 per gallon for propane autogas compared to gasoline. They owe it to their community to provide safe public transportation, at the most economical price. In California, Kamps Propane saves 70 percent in fuel costs when operating their propane autogas vehicles instead of their gasoline ones.

They stand behind the economics of the propane they sell in a state with consistently staggering gas prices.

Join these and other companies across the U.S., like Frito Lay, STI, ThyssenKrupp Elevator, SuperShuttle and DISH, which are benefitting from the shift to this reliably priced, American-made fuel.

Give me a call today at 800.59.ROUSH to learn more about quality Ford vehicles fueled by propane autogas that can reduce operating costs by more than 50 percent.
