Ethanol vs. Oil

By | source: Aug 9th, 2012

With gas prices rising well over $3.00, scientists are looking to other ways to fuel our cars. A promising choice for alternative fuel is ethanol.

In terms of fueling vehicles, using ethanol has equal amounts of pros and cons to it. It burns pretty cleanly, and reduces greenhouse emissions and gas consumption. However, with every great thing there is always a catch; ethanol doesnâ??t produce as much energy as fuel and requires more land to produce.

Hopefully scientists can find a way to reduce the cons because I donâ??t know how much more my wallet can take. Gas prices have caused me to reduce my outings and to make running errands an all day, once a week event. Regardless of what gets used, an alternative is needed to fuel our ever growing, fast paced America. [via]
