New Fuel Sources May Bring Prices Down

High gas prices may be a thing of the past thanks to new fuel sources.

The Department of Energy is trying to develop new sources of fuel and reduce gasoline consumption by 20 percent in the next decade.

It’s part of a new $375 million Bush Administration plan.

The hope is that new research centers in Tennessee, Wisconsin and California can finds ways to develop alternative fuels with non-food sources.

The three centers are partnering with universities, national laboratories and private companies.

They will study biomass plants such as switchgrass, poplar trees and corn stalks used for cellulosic ethanol.
