No. Hydrogen is too dangerous to be where humans live. A spark will generate a glorious explosion. After explosion, the product is water. You need energy to break up the water molecules to form hydrogen and oxygen gases again; the combination of hydrogen and oxygen is also explosive. The energy to break up the water is probably higher than what you can get from burning hydrogen with oxygen -- I did not do a calculation, but if it is untrue, then we should have been breaking up water molecules and not worry about rising gasoline price. So, recycling hydrogen is possible but impractical.
