President George W. Bush talks about his energy initiatives at Hotel Du Pont in Wilmington, Del., Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2007. "American automobile companies, as well as foreign automobile companies competing for market share here in the United States, understand that's where the consumer mentality is evolving," said President Bush.
