- Natural Gas Vehicles - a newly competitive power source, natural gas sustains 240+ years of consumption, is environmentally friendly, and economically attractive. The downfall: refueling infrastructures for natural gas are lacking.
- Good Ol' Fashion Oil - while alternative fuels are quickly developing, gas powered vehicles aren't going anywhere, just take a look at profits for any major oil company. The convenience of gas powered vehicles will keep them in business; however, the downfalls are apparent at the pump. Gas is expensive and can have a major impact on the budget of fleets.
- Electric and Hybrid - Automotive companies are increasingly producing battery electric vehicles. Amp is an example of a company that is taking it a step further with vehicle-to-grid technologies that allow vehicles to take in or give up excess energy to power girds. After countless amounts of time and money put into R&D, electric vehicles are finally starting to turn a profit. The downside: electric vehicle driving distance still doesn't compare to gas.
- Propane Autogas - a by-product of natural gas and petroleum, this alternative fuel lowers greenhouse emissions and the cost of operation. It has recently been used in a new line of school buses and can power larger vehicles.
