-- It appears that British motorists face a difficult year, as fuel prices continue to soar. In addition, concerns over the environmental sustainability of biofuels are rife, with increasing evidence that producing crops for fuel is far more damaging to the environment than the lower carbon emissions from biofuels when compared to burning oil. In light of both of these developments, UK Energy Saving is further promoting green travel options. The consumer website, http://www.uk-
energy-saving.com, covers all aspects of energy saving including information on using transportation wisely.
Hayley Jones, Web Marketing Director for UK Energy Saving, comments on the need to reduce our dependence on oil. “There is no doubt that burning fossil fuels produces greenhouse gases, and something needs to be done to reduce this. There are many ways to save energy, and thinking carefully about greener travel options is one of them. The additional pressure of increased fuel costs may also spur more people on to reduce their car usage. On the UK Energy Saving site, http://www.uk-energy-saving.com
, we promote various ways of achieving this, from using public transport to car sharing. And don’t forget about your feet! A quarter of all car journeys are less than two miles long, a distance easily walked or cycled by most people.”
