Alternate Fuels And The Future Of Cars

As gas prices go up, what is the future for hybrid cars and other alternative fuels for cars?

"We take a look at sustainable energy solutions as gas prices skyrocket, focusing on the increasingly popular hybrid cars. We speak with the founder of hybridcars.com and go to an interview with an activist from the alternative energy movement...The Bush administration has proposed slightly increasing the fuel efficiency of minivans, pickups and some SUVS over the next five years. Environmentalists have criticized the proposals because the rules will not apply to the biggest SUVs such as the H-2 Hummer. This comes as gas prices are reaching record high."
