INVESTING IN AMTRAK WOULD CURB OUR DEPENDENCE ON OIL

Drilling new areas for oil is a good idea, but the results are years away and the quantities will be limited. An idea for quicker and more substantial results, I suggest, lies with Amtrak. Much larger government funding for Amtrak would create more rail service and thus passengers. Over the years, we have put our faith in air and auto travel. The time has come to look at another possibility to reduce oil dependence.
