Yes alternative fuels work great. For example bio-diesel is mixing diesel fuel with cooking oil. Works great when you buy the converter kit, but is costly at the current time due to low manufacturing. If you do not get cooking oil free from say a McDonalds or someplace like that it goes bout $8.00 per gallon. Check back in a few years and this might be cheaper than gas the way prices are going now.

Alternative fuels can be better in that they are generally cleaner than oil and gasoline. Most alternative fuels are renewable, which means there can be a steady supply for a long time. Oil is not renewable. Development of new alternative fuels also can fuel the economy and new jobs. Alternative fuels have the potential to replace the oil economy, it is just a question of if the fuel can be produced efficiently and be sold at a practical price for people.
