Obama touted alot about saving energy and reducing "green house gases" to save the world. He could have done that today and been fine. Obama took a trip to a dinner in Virginia, a 80 mile one way trip that would take aproximately 1.5 hours. Taking out a convoy of 10 vehicles at 15 mpg would have consumed about 100 gallons of gas costing $200. Instead he jumped on Air Force One cutting the trip down to 31 minutes, consuming about 2,060 gallons of jet fuel at a cost of $13,431, just for fuel, no maintaince, or crew costs included.
I could care less that he used Air Force One, I just hate hipocrates, and the fact that AP are the only people who noticed this.
