FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Volkswagen's CEO says he apologized in person to U.S. President Barack Obama for the carmaker's emissions scandal, in which it rigged its cars to cheat on diesel engine pollution tests.

Companies that could benefit

  • Renewable Energy companies are yearning to get more support from the government, but already Obama has given out billions in the form of tax credits and subsidies to Solar Power and Wind Energy.
