In the following video, energy analyst Travis Hoium covers why he likes these alternatives.

    The price of oil is manipulated by the biggest oil producer Saudi Arabia. It is fully capable of sabotaging the sale of electric vehicles but allowing the price of oil to go low. It has repeatedly happen for years; nothing will change.
