CNU on CNN: Norquist Touts Location Efficiency on "Issue #1"

As Americans are rousted from our collective 50-year torpor by ever-rising gasoline prices, newspapers and television stations around the country are finally realizing what we've known for a long time: location efficiency matters.

John Norquist, CNU's president and CEO, drove that point home on CNN's "Issue #1" segment on June 26, in this interview with host Gerri Willis:

Kudos, too, to CNN for showing the Center for Neighborhood Technology's Housing + Transportation Affordability Index site, which gives home buyers the same information that real estate investors consider: the combination of housing and transportation choices beyond the car/minivan/SUV is becoming a critical factor in affordability when gasoline hovers at $4.50 a gallon.
