This is the May 5, 2011 hearing on "The American Energy Initiative, Part 6: Challenges and Opportunities for Alternative Transportation Fuels and Vehicles," held before the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Power. From the opening statement of Ed Whitfield: "This is our sixth of a multi-day hearing entitled the American Energy Initiative. The topic today is focusing on the challenges and opportunities for alternative transportation, fuels, and vehicles. With gasoline prices exceeding $4.00 a gallon in many parts of the country, it is timely that we look at alternatives to petroleum derived fuels for the transportation sector. Efforts to diversify away from reliance on oil for cars and trucks have been underway for a number of years and we know that it has been a goal of the U.S. Government to be less dependent upon foreign oil for many, many, many years. And so the purpose of today's hearing is to provide an overview of these alternative opportunities. We need to know where we stand today and where we would like to be in the years ahead as it relates to alternative fuels and vehicles." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ed Whitfield, Henry A. Waxman, John Sullivan, Bobby L. Rush, Joe Barton, Howard K. Gruenspecht, Patrick Davis, Margo T. Oge, James T. Bartis, Lucian Pugliaresi, Jeffrey G. Miller, Diarmuid O'Connell, Richard Kolodziej, Michael J. McAdams, Robert Dinneen, Dave McCurdy, John Shimkus, Dennis Blair, and Matt Horton.
