The article points out that U.S. President George W. Bush's target of remedying the country's dependence on imported oil by 2025 is way off. Efforts to fix the problem should be made immediately. It should be noted that 70 percent of the imported oil is for transportation. Incentives should be provided by government for the development and use of alternative fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel.
