SUPPLY AND DEMAND OF FUEL SOURCES FOR AUTOMOBILES

A review is given of the state of domestic oil depletion in context of projected world oil production. An optimized strategy for dealing with this problem is discussed. The strategy is based on the development of low cost synfuels and preparation for the introduction and utilization of these synfuels; i.e., smaller more efficient cars are needed that can utilize available synfuels. In addition, advanced batteries are required before electricity from coal and/or nuclear energy can be effectively utilized in transportation. Finally, the result of an economic analysis that indicates the nature of optimization of the overall strategy is given. (ERA citation 01:026033)
