Reuters: Bush urges gas conservation.
Bush, a former Texas oilman, also said that the back-to-back hurricanes show the need for more U.S. refining capacity to meet gasoline demand.
"The storms have shown how fragile the balance is of supply and demand in America," he said.
In the meantime, American consumers should try to conserve fuel when possible. Federal employees will be encouraged to carpool or use mass transit, Bush said.
"We can all pitch in by being better conservers of energy -- people need to recognize the storm has caused disruption," he said.
