"PUMP next takes us on a survey of the fuels that ought to be competing with oil for our transportation dollar — because they all cost less than gasoline or diesel — electric vehicles, natural gas fuels, or biofuels derived from agricultural or municipal wastes or dedicated crops. It argues that a huge portion of today's cars could actually operate on ethanol or methanol derived from natural gas or biomass with truly trivial software and fuel line modifications, while fleet turnover will more slowly take us to a largely electric vehicle future. It uses Brazil as a powerful counter-narrative, a country that did break oil's monopoly at its pumps, and convincingly argues that the alternatives to oil are both better and cheaper — if they could get into the market."
The fastest way to get these fuels into the market is the Open Fuel Standard. Let's hope the movie awakens Americans' determination to break oil's monopoly forever.
