Laura, thanks for the thumbs up on alternative fuels development. Seems like some people that comment on the site are not exactly in favor of funding or aiding their development.

Elizabeth, you are entirely welcome :) I, too, was excited to see the press release on this research and follow up to find out more details about the report's findings. Stay tuned--I'll be writing about reports on wind, solar and biofuels in the new few weeks.

We have viable options now

Switching from expensive imported oil to alternative fuels has moved from a far-off dream to an achievable reality. Today's gasoline alternatives promise a path away from the imported-oil addiction that squeezes our pocketbooks, pollutes our air and endangers our national security.

At least four alternatives are not only already in use, but have what it takes to put us on the road to permanently breaking oil's death grip on America's drivers: ethanol, methanol, natural gas, and electricity.

Rob, good point; however, that was taken into account by LUX and the report's authors, at least as far as volumes go. The need to replace such huge quantities of petroleum-based oil means that there's room for many different technologies. Shale oil quantities will by no means be sufficient. Whether fracking's results will serve as an excuse not to continue pursuing alternative fuels is a different question. Price is not the only reason to pursue these other sources.

Will fracking hurt development?

While the wide range of alternative fuel looks promising, I wonder how fracking will affect the economic feasibility of alternatives. Fracking is bringing down the cost of natural gas and may bring down the cost of oil. Without high energy prices for traditional fuels, alternaqtive fuels may face a sizeable roadblock.

Thanks for the thorough coverage of this report, Ann. It's exciting to see alternative fuels finally coming into their own and I'll be curious to see which ones actually end up making the grade this year and emerging as the leaders. After seeing what happened in Arkansas recently, which had oil running through the streets after an Exxon pipeline leak, now more than ever is the time to consider alternative fuels.
