François Loos at the "Parisien": riding at 115km / h instead of 130 on the motorway makes it possible to offset the rise in oil
Minister of Industry François Loos invites the French to "make a gesture" to "consume less oil", such as "for example" to drive 115km / h instead of 130 highway, he says in an interview at the "Parisian-Today in France" Saturday.
"You have to encourage people to consume less," says Loos. "Some advocate" a new limitation of road speed "but nothing is arbitrated".
Still, "do not expect everything from the state, it is up to everyone to make a gesture to consume less oil. For example, reducing its speed from 130km / h to 115km / h on the highway allows a saving that offsets the recent rise in the price of oil.
"We are indeed experiencing a long-lasting price of oil, we will also retain a barrel at least 50 dollars in the draft budget 2006. It must be adapted, "notes the Minister.
Note econology: another beautiful discour (useless because everyone already knows) that the government would do better to focus on the development of cleaner engines and more efficiently RE ...
In addition, Mr Loos has probably not taken into account the shortfall of Time (non-productive) lost on the road ... These GDP and various taxes and less in the state budget.
Anyway, it will be us, the consumers, who will pay the final bill even as oil profits explode ... Since the state is not ready to make concessions ...
