Nothing by itself will solve U.S. energy problems.

The alternatives to CNG = compressed natural gas are less attractive, near term, so we should replace 10% of our petrolium vehicle fuel by 2011 if possible. We could now be at 10% CNG, if the USA government had not been obstructive. Likely about 22% is cost effective, becoming less practical at more than 22%. Likely we could be at 2% with algae in transparent pipes if someone had invested a few billion in the technology. Algae in transparent pipes still looks attractive and could also provide 22% of our vehicle fuel with modest subsidies. Electric hybred vehicles may be impractical above 2%, but plugin electric and plug in hybreds may be practical to 22% with modest subsidies. That still leaves us with some dependency on foreign oil, but is a big improvement.   Neil
