Choice;Feb2009, p24
The article focuses on the benefits of fuel switching, downsizing and less driving in Australia. It says that switching from petroleum to biofuel can soften the impact on consumers' wallet and can reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions by vehicles. It also suggests consumers to drive smarter, and if possible limit the use of cars. An evaluation of the good and bad effects of fuel alternatives is presented.
