Alternative fuels are derived from resources other than petroleum. Some are produced domestically, reducing our dependence on imported oil, and some are derived from renewable sources. Often, they produce less pollution than gasoline or diesel.

Alternative Fuels

Ethanol is produced domestically from corn and other crops and produces less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional fuels.
