    I also think we need to look into magnetic power. Especially for trains. And build more monorails, there aren't any here, for public transportation. The initial cost would be high, but in the long run, wed be saving both energy and money, especially if we're using alternative sources.
    We are really faced with 2 options that would solve the gas problem (unless there is one I am not considering). Either find a way to reduce the dependence that the U.S. currently has on gasoline by offering a transportation option that is not powered by a fossil fuel or find an alternate fuel that is renewable that can replace gasoline and diesel fuel.

    Yes, persuading people to cut down on fuel consumption is a good idea or just getting people from being so dependent on cars. The prices on gas in the U.S. are nothing when compared to Europe (it’s about 3 to 4 dollars a gallon in the US but over 10 dollars in Europe). Europe doesn’t have such a big problem with gas prices, though, because they are not as gas dependent as the U.S. due to the fact that they have more access to transportation that is not dependent on a fossil fuel.

    If the government were to make an extensive monorail system through out the U.S. then I would be willing to bet that fuel consumption and car usage would go down. Main reason being that it would be another transportation option for long distance trips so families wouldn’t be restricted on only being able to choose either between driving a car or riding a plane (two options that both use up fuel). Overall the need for cars would be greatly reduced.

    Creating a monorail system through out the country as you said would cost a lot of money which might not have been a problem if not for the fact that we are in extreme debt (up to 9 trillion now) at the moment and would take years upon years to complete.

    This is probably why the government has focused mainly on finding alternate fuels. Finding a usable, renewable alternate fuel source is the “easier and cheaper solution” to the gas crisis to say the least.

    It's really a viable reason at this point in time to go with the easier and cheaper solution as well. Until the U.S. has reduced the debt, the country should avoid big money projects the best it can in my opinion.

    They found them lots of them... the only problem now we are facing is using it in commercial size :/ it is true people still use petroleum now... not many changed to use other means of electricity and also to change all of that at one time would be hard and a lot of money would be needed... :/ but it must be done quickly...

    Other than that is to create better machines compatible with the fuel and energy or produce something to harness the energy more efficiently... ^^
