    It is time to end the oil monopoly on transportation fuels…….

    Electric, flex-fuel, biofuel, hybrid, CNG, LNG and hydrogen fueled vehicles are all growing in popularity.

    Unless we all start walking, riding a bicycle or taking mass transit we will need to transition to some alternative energy source for transportation.

    As oil demand increases and the supply starts decreasing the price will rise to higher and higher levels causing more individuals and businesses to switch to other energy sources.

    Having an alternative source of energy for transportation purposes makes economic sense.

    If everyone in the “developed” nations cut their personal use of fossil fuels by 50 percent in the next four years it would only make about a 10 percent reduction in the use of fossil fuels.

    The change needs to be broad-based across personal, commercial, industrial and the largest users in the developing nations or it will fail to be enough.
