:60 READER SCRIPT
(DOES NOT FULLY MATCH AUDIO)

AMERICANS ARE HITTING THE HIGHWAYS, THIS SUMMER, FOR VACATIONS AND OTHER GETAWAYS.  AND, WITH MORE AND MORE CARS ON THE ROAD, IT'S ESSENTIAL THAT WE FIND WAYS TO REDUCE EMISSIONS--AND SAVE MONEY.  MINERALS ARE TURNING OUT TO BE THE ANSWER--ACCORDING TO THE "NATIONAL MINING ASSOCIATION".  THAT'S BECAUSE METALS AND MINERALS ARE KEY COMPONENTS IN HIGH-PERFORMANCE, INNOVATIVE, AND MORE-EFFICIENT AUTOMOBILES.  FOR EXAMPLE, PLATINUM IN CATALYTIC-CONVERTERS HELPS LOWER TAILPIPE-EMISSIONS.  AND, ALUMINUM IS USED IN LIGHTER VEHICLE-FRAMES THAT INCREASE A CAR'S 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.  MINERALS NOT ONLY MAKE OUR CARS MORE EFFICIENT, THEY ALSO IMPROVE OUR ECONOMY--BY PROVIDING QUALITY JOBS, BOOSTING THE DOMESTIC MANUFACTURING-INDUSTRY, AND SUPPORTING OUR NATIONAL-DEFENSE.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "MINERALS-MAKE-LIFE"-DOT-ORG.
