OTTAWA, June 3, 2013 /CNW/ -
Gas prices are on the rise and there is something that consumers can do
about it. In fact, the auto industry offers a whole range of
fuel-efficient choices. Accordingly, our association is organising a
media and automotive industry event call the Eco-Run. The event
intends to demonstrate fuel-efficient solutions to the gasoline price
crisis; including a broad spectrum of fuel-efficient choices that are
on the market today. They include hybrids, EVs and other advanced
conventional technologies. These technologies combined with
Eco-friendly driving habits will make a difference. Journalists who
are members of AJAC will drive the 21 participating vehicles
demonstrating how you can safely save on fuel and vehicle maintenance
costs by adopting a few driving techniques, and following some basic
tips. Eco-Run is a 3-day event starting In Ottawa with many stops
enroute to a finish on Thursday in Montreal.
Tuesday, June 4th, 2013. Eco-Run's official start with Minister Joe Oliver.
CAA and Natural Resources Canada are event partners. Both have their
own story to tell. The Minister of Natural Resources, Minister Joe
