    Money is indeed an issue. Petroleum-based fuel industries have long received subsidies from national governments that has given them unfair advantage. We have developed our infrastructure to accommodate cars, often tying federal transportation dollars directly to highway construction instead of leaving it for each community to decide, or regulating a minimum to be spent on mass transit or bike paths. More than just pumping money into alternative fuels, we need to drastically change the way we prioritize spending. Worldwide $300 billion has been spent every year to subsidize fossil fuels. In a huge step forward the world’s largest economies, meeting in the recent G20 conference, have all agreed to stop subsidies to oil, coal and other fossil fuels.
