Virginia is planning to explore the potential of alternative-fuel vehicles, including those that run on propane autogas, natural gas, hybrid technology, biofuels, hydrogen and electricity, to run its fleet of 10,000 trucks and cars, according to a newspaper editorial. "As we continue on the path toward making Virginia the 'Energy Capital of the East Coast,' it is important that we pursue all practicable and cost-effective options to promote the use of alternative fuel vehicles," Gov. Bob McDonnell said in a statement.
