With the current state of bio-fuels being in shortage, what new method will be used to power our cars and other vehicles in the future?
Several alternatives have been introduced such as, Solar, Electric and the work on Hydrogen fuel cells. Out of all this technology that is being created to help us power our vehicles, what do you think will win out as the ultimate Gasoline and Diesel replacement?

Electric cars will no doubt rule the roads in the future. Electric cars produce zero emissions and the costs of powering them are relatively cheap. However, how that electricity is generated is the bigger question (and all of the other methods you listed above to power cars can also be used to generate electricity).

Well Solar Vehicles don't seems practical enough, Electric Cars can't travel as far as an ordinary car and even then it takes 8 or so hours to re-charge so thats ALSO unpractical. Hydrogen Cars will be the future, Hydrogen is pretty much unlimited, its only emission is water vapor and it can be re-fueled in a very similar way and time to the way current cars are. Hydrogen cars ALSO don't cost that much to make currently, but when they start becoming more popular and mass produced then they'll be about the same price as cars now.
