It is about a bunch of autonomous cars following a car driven by a human!

With the nation trying to reduce its dependence on foreign oil and also concerned about global warming, eco friendly cars will play a big role in addressing those concerns. Before you go out and purchase another big pickup truck or SUV that is not very environmentally friendly, consider the benefits of owning an eco friendly car.
A switch to a car that has better fuel efficiency will give you more miles to the gallon while also reducing your carbon footprint. Hybrid vehicles or all-electric vehicles use even less gas and emit fewer dangerous emissions into the atmosphere.
Hybrid cars that are powered with a combination of gas and electricity or cars that run completely on battery power cost less to operate per mile than the traditional combustion engine powered vehicle. Americans are more than a little frustrated at being held hostage by oil-producing nations.

Even though Saudi Arabia is on good terms with the United States, they do not sell us oil at a discount. In order to free ourselves from the dependence on foreign oil, we must invest in eco friendly cars that use other sources of energy beside oil.
Building eco friendly vehicles that can run on natural gas will reduce our energy costs. Natural gas does not have the same environmental impact and has been shown to be an effective way of powering a car.Open a Walmart Credit Card & get $25 back after spending $25 on purchases today.
