(DOES NOT FULLY MATCH AUDIO)

ACCORDING TO "TRIPLE-A", MORE AMERICANS ARE HITTING THE ROADS THIS SUMMER--FOR VACATIONS TO THE BEACH, CAMPGROUNDS, OR OTHER DESTINATIONS.  WITH MORE CARS ON THE ROAD, IT'S ESSENTIAL THAT WE FIND MORE WAYS TO REDUCE EMISSIONS.  AND, THE NATIONAL MINING ASSOCIATION SAYS THAT MINED MINERALS ARE TURNING OUT TO BE THE ANSWER:  METALS AND MINERALS ARE KEY-COMPONENTS IN NEXT-GENERATION VEHICLES.  SPECIFICALLY, MINERALS ARE CRITICAL TO ENGINE-COMPONENTS SUCH AS CATALYTIC-CONVERTERS THAT HELP REDUCE EMISSIONS--AS WELL AS FOR THE DESIGN OF LIGHTER VEHICLE-FRAMES THAT CONTRIBUTE TO FUEL-EFFICIENCY.  IN FACT, EVERY 10-PERCENT REDUCTION IN A VEHICLE'S WEIGHT TRANSLATES TO A SIX- TO SEVEN-PERCENT IMPROVEMENT IN FUEL-ECONOMY--MEANING LESS FUEL-CONSUMPTION AND LOWER EMISSIONS.  AND, MINERALS NOT ONLY MAKE OUR CARS MORE EFFICIENT--BUT ALSO POWER THE NATION'S ECONOMY:  THEY ENABLE AMERICA'S DOMESTIC MANUFACTURING-INDUSTRY TO PROVIDE QUALITY-JOBS, PROMOTE TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION, AND STRENGTHEN NATIONAL SECURITY.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "MINERALS-MAKE-LIFE"-DOT-ORG.
