  WHAT:     Fuel prices! Where will they go this week?  Of course, no one
            really knows, but it's no secret that the prices have soared in
            recent months, exceeding $2.50 per gallon as consumers suffer
            from international tensions and "anticipatory pricing."

            Last week, the government introduced new fuel economy rules in
            response to concerns regarding the cost and supply of petroleum
            resources. But, what can CONSUMERS do to save money?

  WHO:      Roy Cox, author of Improving Fuel Economy: Money In Your Pocket
            and manager of technical training and research for AAA's
            National Office is available to offer his expertise and explain
            practical ways to use less fuel and simple step-by-step
            instructions for common do-it-yourself procedures that drivers
            can do to keep their cars performing at peak power while staying
            economically friendly.

  WHEN:     With consumer concern over the high prices and sensitivities to
            fuel economy at an all time high, Roy Cox is available the week
            of April 3rd to give readers some practical tips in driving
            habits, maintenance and selecting a car, which can all help to
