How To Market Alternative Fuels 101


We wonder what our marketing friends at Seth Godin or PSFK will say about Terror Free Oil,- that's a name that will drive business! Opening in Omaha in February, it is the first of a chain of stations from the Terror-Free Oil Initiative , dedicated to encouraging Americans to "buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism." and "We are also looking into creating a healthy debate concerning alternate methods of fuel production and consumption."
