Adel - A south Georgia Congressman says the United States could end its dependency on oil from the middle east in less than 20 years.

At a meeting in Adel today, 1st District Representative Jack Kingston told constituents about his plan.

The Fuel Choices for America Security Act will offer deeper tax credits to people who buy hybrid vehicles and gas stations that add flex fuel, bio-diesel, or ethanol options to their pumps. 
"We can grow our way out of the gas crisis, using corn, using sugar, using ethanol and when you drive down the road your next tank of gas could be in that cornfield," Congressman Kingston said.

Kingston introduced the bill last year.  It now has 80 co-sponsors in the House and 17 in the Senate.
