Abstract

The dependence of the transportation industry on oil based fuels like gasoline and diesel is a major problem in today's world. Comparisons between hydrogen and gasoline cars based on total cost of ownership and carbon emissions were made to decide if a “Hydrogen Economy” was a practical alternative to the current oil economy. It was determined that hydrogen vehicles are a very practical solution to the world’s fuel needs in the years to come.
