High Energy Density Alternative Fuel

If this is true (and oil prices don't drop tremendously), then someone is going to get very, very wealthy.

Energy density has always been the bane of the biofuel/ethanol from corn industry. If your mileage drops, it can really cut into the emissions and cost savings. But if energy density can be increased while cutting emissions and cost, somebody is going to make bank. The innovation and money being poured into energy research are the only upsides I see to the increased gas prices. Premium is pushing $4/gallon in my locale. Back 4 years ago when gas prices were really high at $1.50/gallon, I didn't think I'd see this day before I turned 40/50.
