diesel vs gas info for class

Im thinking of doing a policy speech on diesel vs gas or maybe even all alternative fuels for my college speech class. Any of you guys have good articles or links for research. Or just opinions and personal info. Thanks

Just found it all. I did my policy speech on illegal immigration, but I did an arguing essay on alternative fuels, I'll check the references and see if they are even real or if I just made them up and put them up for ya.

Here's what I got for immigration, a couple years old but would probably help you out if you went that route. My resources for the alternative fuels was all books, so puttin those up wont help you much.

I was thinkin that. I was out cruisin college this weekend and there were a ton of trucks racin around. I thought you were one of them. I kept seeing a red crew cab with black stacks and black grille and bumper, so I finally waited for it and realized it wasn't lifted and the bumper was a ranch hand.
