Gas prices irrelevant with OSU vehicle

Columbus, OH – As Democratic governors from several states, including Ohio, urge President Bush to do something about the high gas prices - engineers at Ohio State University have taken gas out of the equation by developing a biodiesel-electric hybrid vehicle. It's part of a competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and General Motors and involves 16 other universities, including Akron, Michigan, Penn State and Wisconsin. Ohio State placed fourth overall last year, and has sent its vehicle off to GM's Milford, Michigan facility for this year's judging. Hear Ohio State's team leader Kris Sevel talk about the features of the vehicle and take it for a drive.
