The paper discusses how, with the problems in foreign policy and the volatile situation in the Middle East, it is important to reduce the U.S. dependency on foreign nations for oil with regard to vehicle use. The paper maintains that the time has come to use alternative means of fuel and suggests ethanol technology for transportation needs. The paper explains that supporters of ethanol technology believe the effort is worth the end result, since the use of ethanol is environmentally friendly and will provide business for the domestic farmer because it uses surplus agricultural crops.
