The author offers a solution to the declining supply of gasoline and electricity. He notes that U.S. use of more gasoline and electricity is considered a strength, and not weakness. The author suggests driving Reverse Flow Trolley Cars by cross-wiring six universal alternators in every car. He describes how driving the car can provide unused electricity into the national power grid, by using curb feelers to transfer electricity from the car to wire grids on the road.
