The next few years will be the tipping point as America starts to take serious actions to protect our environment by using alternative fuels in cars.

Alternative fuels have been used throughout history by notable engineers like Henry Ford, who ran one of his first cars using the hemp plant (commonly known today as ethanol). However, gasoline became the number one fuel choice because it was the easiest commodity to obtain and had a low selling price.

Over 100 years later, things have changed. American's gasoline usage has put our country at a crossroads. The fight over safer fuels that can help keep our environment clean has creased the lines of newspapers throughout the country, as President Obama and Congress work to set the standards for the future.

Over the next 10 years, President Obama’s Energy Security Trust looks to fund clean energy research and development and will encourage all Americans to switch to alternative fuels. The infographic below explains what you should know about various alternative fuels and gives a glimpse of what the future might hold for the everyday driver.
