Making oil just another commodity

The Philadelphia Bulletin notes:

The Set America Free Coalition offers another perspective on America’s dependence on oil imports. The goal of Set America Free is to strip oil of its strategic value for OPEC by providing Americans with greater transportation fuel choices, including plug-in hybrid cars and flexible fuel vehicles. The plug-in hybrids are like other hybrids except they have bigger batteries and can drive 20 miles on a single charge. Flexible fuel vehicles, which are widely used in Brazil allow cars to run a variety of fuel types, giving consumers a choice at the pump between gas and alcohol. “We’re always going to need oil…we need to make oil just another commodity” Anne Korin, Set America Free Chair said.
