Why You Must Have An Alternative Fuel Car With Gas Prices Rising

Jun 13, 2008
For the first time in history the average gas price per gallon has risen to $4 in US. This has altered the lifestyle of people in ways that they never imagined before and at the same time this has had them look for alternate fuels.

Beyond the obvious changes like cutting down on the trips to grocery stores there have been impacts on how one drives or whether one drives at all because of these high prices. One corporate businessman decided to take the bus every day to work in order to bring down the gas budget which had gotten close to $400 per month for his family. The effects were tangible like waking up early to catch the bus and then getting off at a certain hour to make it to the bus or walking up a mile to his office from the bus stand. More than the tangible effects there were emotional effects of suddenly feeling 'poor' and feeling that you are not able to provide enough for your family.

Another employee working at an insurance company had to hunt out foods in the grocery section which could remain frozen for his lunch as he was no longer in a position to afford his trips to restaurants during lunch break. Not because of the food prices but the gas prices.

Some other families have decided not to take a vacation and drive down to their parent's house as the gas prices are too high. And yet others have bought smaller cars in order to be fuel efficient even if it means that some members of the family have to be cramped in the back seat.

They say necessity is the mother of invention and all of these factors have led the American consumer to look for alternate fuels. What this has meant for companies is to create technology which can use alternate sources of fuel and they have done a good job at it too.

Ethanol has fast risen the popularity chart as an alternate fuel or rather something that can blend with the gas that you are using and provide an alternate source of energy and be cost effective. Biodiesel has been in use by companies lately and there are many cars which use a blend of biodiesel and gas to fuel cars and even homes.

The Japanese are far ahead in the game when it comes to creating hybrid cars and many of the hybrid cars are much more fuel efficient and as effective when it comes to power as the conventional cars. However the most path - breaking technology in fuel efficiency has got to be the ability to fuel your car using water. There has been research going on to blend water with fuel over the years and the technology is now finally feasible. Hundreds have already adopted it and many more are joining every day in buying conversion kits that helps them run their cars on a blend of water and fuel. This technology is very safe and is already in use by many families.

Best of all it can save up to 40% of your gas prices and is not difficult to install too. This technology is environment friendly as well because it helps you to reduce emissions and stay green.

Everyone who is feeling the pinch of gas should try this technology out and find for themselves that there is really no need for them to make the sacrifices they are making just for the sake of gas prices.
