We commend Alabama leaders for being on the forefront nationally in using alternative fuels.

All vehicles purchased by the state this year were flex fuel vehicles.  The state motor pool now has 151 of them.

More than 52,000 gallons of E-85 has been pumped into those state vehicles.  E-85 is a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. 

It may one day be the only type of gasoline the state uses.

It costs less than regular gasoline - some estimate up to 50 cents a gallon less - saving taxpayers money.

It is good for the environment and is American made.

Americans consume 25% of the world's energy.

There are 541 oil fields in the world and all of them are more than 50% depleted.

Alabama's fuel of the future is here now.    We are doing our part to curb resource depletion.
