Alternative fuel technology will become a growing field throughout our future unless something is done in terms of the United States ability to use energy. Fossil Fuels are a non-renewable resource, and will diminish with time; so new alternatives must be made. Hopefully a combination of alternative fuel sources will be able to meet out nation and the world’s need for energy.
