Just a comment that here in Madison, Wisconsin, a number of the vans at
the hospital I work at (University Hospital & Clinics) have been
converted to propane power, as has one or two of the taxi fleets in the
city.  (Of course, with Badger Cab, that might be as much to keep
driver's from stealing the taxis as out of concern for oil

The city buses still seem to run off of oil, however.  Plus, I suspect
that propane power might just be a temporary solution.
