INGENUITY OF SAN DIEGANS CAN EASE GAS CRISIS, DR. SHIRLEY WEBER SAYS

 

Assembly Candidate says accelerating production of San Diego-made biofuels will ease pain at the pump and put hundreds back to work

“San Diego is home to groundbreaking research on biofuels, especially those developed from algae,” Dr. Weber said. “We need to accelerate the production being done here so that next time oil prices spike or a foreign regime tries to hold our economy hostage, we are in control of our own energy future. Accelerated biofuel production would not only ease pain at the pump, it would put hundreds of San Diegans back to work in good paying jobs in a growing sector.”
