No New Gasoline-Powered Vehicles in the U.S. by 2014 ... Can It Be Done?

LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The world seems to be in the midst of an energy crisis, fueled (if you'll pardon the pun) by issues related to petroleum oil and gasoline. Among the consequences of these issues are: soaring prices of other consumer products and services; limited freedom of personal movement; erosion of individual wealth; funding of global terrorism; and the granddaddy of all oil/gasoline consequences, pollution.

The remedy may be as simple as the elimination of gasoline-powered vehicles, or at least the elimination of all new gasoline-powered vehicles by 2014. That's the premise of The Auto Channel's new investigative study into finding a solution to the energy crisis, soaring prices, and environmental deterioration.

The study reviews all alternative sources for vehicle fuel and examines possible geo-political motives as to why the crisis even exists. In the first two parts of the study, The Auto Channel takes an in-depth look at propane as one workable, existing fuel source. The Auto Channel also provides extensive exclusive coverage of recent industry trade events and expositions that explain all aspects of the alternate fuels and vehicles issue. The complete coverage includes hundreds of text pages and videos.

Sure it can, but do Americans have the collective will to make the sacrifices necessary to make it happen? I think not. If the only motivator is fuel prices, and the first-generation alt-fuels are as much or more than gasoline, expect any sweeping "green" initiatives to get a lukewarm reception by the American public.
