"We need to use our huge natural gas reserves to run all diesel trucks. Converting a diesel engine to propane(compressed natural gas) is an easy conversion. And they are making a car in France that runs on compressed air, look it up. Where is our innovation?" That'll never happen. The powers that be don't want us to be free from dependency. Innovation IS happening here at home though, that's why some people are getting 30 to 50 mpg from pickups and why some are getting over 100 mpg from hybrids. Even more is possible with the hybrids than what they're getting now if they did more. You won't see the innovation come out of the automakers, not here, not Europe, not Asia or anywhere. Well, except for companies like Aptera and their vehicles.
