I keep hearing this (can't help it since it is ALL over the radio and TV). Yes we need to look for alternative fuels. I believe there is not any one golden BB here, it will be a multitude of differing sources (corn fuel NOT being one of them IMO).

HOWEVER, I found it very interesting and and a not very well known fact that one of those "foreign countries" T Boone Pickens talks about is non other than Canada. You'd get the impression from his ad that ALL of our wealth is going overseas, to the middle east...The fact is that we import more oil from Canada than from any other country!
