Switch - To a Smarter Future
Oil

The economic gas pedal

Oil goes into myriad products that have transformed our modern world, but none so much as gasoline and diesel. They provide a level of mobility for people and our products never before known, creating the first global economy – which is now so dependent on oil that price shocks have global impacts. A wise economic response is to diversify, into other transport fuels. This could also bring environmental and political benefits.
