Obama, expanding on an initiative he addressed in his State of the Union speech last month, said the United States must shift its cars and trucks entirely off oil to avoid perpetual fluctuations in gas prices. Citing policies that already require automakers to increase gas mileage, he said he expects that by the middle of the next decade, Americans will only have to fill up their cars half as often.
Update: He said without using a drop of oil. That's what he is talking about, alternatives to oil.

I don't think he meant non-stop coast to coast, who does that?

And I agree hydrogen is the future. It's only emission is water.
