Albany--Just as gas prices reached an all-time high, President Bush says he may have a solution to those rising prices.

He wants to reduce America's dependence on foreign oil by twenty percent in ten years.

The President says increasing the use of alternative fuels to 35 billion gallons by 2017 and boosting fuel efficiency standards in new vehicles is a must.

In the meantime, drivers say they need some help now.

The national average gas price now tops the post-Katrina record.

"I feel like they went down a little bit for a little while, and now they're starting to go back up. But I don't really drive that much anymore," says Anna Roth.

"It seems like I drive more now than when gas was down, and now that it's up, it seems like I drive more. So I don't complain about it, I just keep going on with my everyday life," says Mark Cody.

According to AAA, the average price of regular unleaded nationwide is more than $3.07 a gallon.

The Georgia average is about $2.92.
