Do you think gasoline powered cars planes trains buses will become obsolete in the future ? Why or why not?

Cars and planes have been invented 100 years ago and their emissions have wrecked the environment with how fast technology moves I believe future generations will have to find new energy sources such as electricity. Also the issue of all haves have driveways roads etc

    Yes it might because crude oil is a limited commodity and it is estimated at our rate of consuming these fossil fuels we will likely run out in less than 60 years. Lets hope they figure out a way to make synthetic gasoline someday. And Do not think by driving electric cars your saving the environment because about %60 of our power plants in America still run on coal and natural gas which also pollutes the air.

      Synthetic fuels have been around about 100 years - see the History section of this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthetic_fuel

    There are already lots of city buses and commuter trains that run on electricity. Electric cars are becoming more popular all the time, and even heavy trucks are being developed to ruin on batteries.

    Driveway, roads, Toll Booths etc have been around for thousands of years. Until some viable energy source comes around that is cheaper, easier to refill and produces as much power as an ICE then an infrastructure to support the new technology - my answer is NO not obsolete in your lifetime.

    Of course they will become obsolete in the future. The question is only, "when?"

    They are already being phased out in many places. It's inevitable, it's only a matter of how long it takes for the rest of the world to catch on.
