The article presents that author's opinion on fluctuating oil prices and viability of fuel alternatives. He says lowered oil prices are a result of slowed economic activity and policymakers need to recognize that prices respond to the supply-demand equation. Media promotions of the alternative of the moment gets in the way of thought. He thinks no alternative can answer all energy needs but there is a need to explore new oil supplies and develop alternatives.
