"GasHole" - alternative fuels vs. oil (trailer)


"GasHole" is a documentary film about the history of petroleum prices and the future of alternative fuels. The film is a wide yet detailed examination of US dependence on foreign oil supplies. What are the causes that turned America from a leading exporter to the world's largest importer? What are the forces that contributed to that change and that impede its solution?

There are many potential solutions to our oil dependence. Starting with claims of buried technology that easily and dramatically improves gas mileage right now, to navigating bureaucratic and industry roadblocks, to evaluating different fuels available, to questioning the American consumer's reluctance to embrace alternatives. If you buy gasoline, see this movie! Directed by Scott Roberts and Jeremy Wagener.

An optimistic (and witty) discovery of what we do, could do, and
might do to prevent this climate crisis. Directed by Peter Byck.
