  3. 3. <ul><li>This research project poses the question on if or at what price point per gallon of gasoline will Americans resort to alternative means of transportation? </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>What is the price point at which Americans will consider public transportation as a viable transportation method to and from their employment? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the price point at which Americans will consider alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles as a viable option to meet their transportation needs? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the character of the United States’ dependence on foreign oil and can this reliance be rectified through some alternative means? </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>What alternative fuels are most Americans aware of? </li></ul><ul><li>What alternative transportation methods are Americans most willing to use? </li></ul><ul><li>Is there an economic rationale in the use of alternative fuels in that if American consumers are able to realize a substantial economic savings, will alternative fuels become more widely adopted? </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Approximately 60% of US’ petroleum is sourced from foreign oil reserves </li></ul><ul><li>Rising costs, environmental factors such as global warming, and improved technology is making alternative transportation & fuels more attractive </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative fuels such as biofuels like ethanol are extremely practical </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Automobiles are produced in such a great variety that consumers purchase cars based on style, fashion, and other factors unrelated to actual practicality </li></ul><ul><li>US automobile manufacturers are not efficient and are in great financial difficulty </li></ul><ul><li>There is an economic rationale for biofuels </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The working hypothesis of this study states that there is a price point per gallon of gasoline that will cause Americans to turn en masse towards a higher rate of acceptance of alternative fuels as well as means of transportation. </li></ul><ul><li>This study employs a qualitative methodology with the research being grounded in the literature but also employs a quantitative research survey </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>65.3% of respondents were female </li></ul><ul><li>62% of respondents indicated that automobiles using alternative fuels are economically viable </li></ul><ul><li>76% of respondents revealed that they thought that alternative fuels were also environmentally friendly </li></ul><ul><li>51% of respondents indicated that public transportation is largely ineffective </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>62% of respondents revealed that $4 a gallon gasoline would cause them to shift to alternative fuel vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>27% revealed that $5 a gallon gasoline would cause them to consider selling their vehicles completely </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Foreign petroleum dependency is not sustainable </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative fuels are the most viable and achievable options </li></ul><ul><li>Ethanol has an existing infrastructure established and can be readily integrated into existing vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>States and the National Government should implement widespread production of ethanol and supplement consumer adoption of ethanol based vehicles </li></ul>
