Abstract: It is argued that accumulating evidence from the use of supernovae as distance indicators points to a low value of the Hubble constant of 57 + or - 10 km/s/Mpc. Five ways to use supernovae as distance indicators are addressed: the Baade method and VLBI method for type II supernovae and methods involving the brightest stars in IC 4182, galactic SNRs, and nickel radioactivity for type Ia supernovae.
