LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's White House press conference, President Obama acknowledged the upward trend in gas prices. He was asked by Fox News reporter Ed Henry if he wanted gas prices to rise even further, in the hopes that it will wean consumers off of fossil fuels (a stated goal of the Obama administration). The President mockingly replied, "Ed, just from a political perspective, do you think the President of the United States going into re-election wants gas prices to go up higher? Is that - is there anybody here who thinks that makes a lot of sense?" Well, it may not make a lot of sense for the President's political fortunes, but rising gas prices are already driving many consumers – especially here in Los Angeles – to look for green alternatives. This is evident in the increasing popularity of MPG Car Rental, a green car rental company based in Venice, California.
