Ever wondered where all the biodiesel drivers are? Or how about where to find the most corn ethanol is made? Questions like these can be answered over at TransAtlas, a new project by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL). While good old Joe Internet can use the Google Maps-based map to find information, the DOE and NREL really designed the system to help industry and government planners make decisions on how best to east America's dependence on oil. The alternative "fuel" types included on the map include: biodiesel, compressed or liquefied natural gas, ethanol (E85), electricity, hydrogen, and propane (sorry, diesel). Current and future refueling stations are included. Check out the map here.
