The Fuel Crisis

A buddy of mine who drives a diesel work truck told me he "filled up with soy-diesel, and will from now on whenever possible."
It's not cheaper, but it is supposed to be cleaner.
The main thing is, it was all made from products grown in the United States. As far as I'm concerned, every little bit helps. We've got to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil. As long as we depend on other countries for energy, we'll be subject to economic blackmail. (And if you don't think oil is the reason we're in Iraq, you haven't thought far enough into it.)
I'm considering converting my truck to alcohol, which can also be made completely here in the United States.
I keep hearing we need to be more "energy conscious" or "energy efficient." I say we need to be more energy savvy -- if we make our own, we'll have plenty.
