As he pushes for reduced demand for gasoline, President Bush says he likes what he sees from domestic automakers.

He's praising them for building more flex-fuel vehicles that can run on ethanol and bio-diesel blends.

The president met with executives from GM, Ford and DaimlerChrysler, looking at alternative-fuel vehicles on the White House South Lawn. Bush says the automakers "recognize the reality" of the world in which we live. He says they're "using new technologies" so consumers will have "different options."

Bush said there's a need to cut gasoline usage, both for national security reasons and to help the environment.
