A caravan of hybrid and alternative-fuel vehicles is making its way across the state in an effort to educate Missourians on the benefits of the use of renewable and alternative fuels. From its start, Tuesday, in St. Louis through to Friday’s conclusion Friday in Kansas City, the “Drive Clean and Green Across Missouri” caravan has stops scheduled in a number of cities. Haley Wansing with the Missouri Soybean Association – a sponsor of the caravan – says Tuesday’s stops include the St. Louis Science Center, the General Motors Wentzville Plant, the University of Missouri-Columbia, and the State Capitol in Jefferson City. Wednesday, the caravan heads to the University of Missouri-Rolla, followed by a visit to Lebanon High School. Thursday’s stops include Southwest Missouri State Universit in Springfield and Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg. It wraps up Friday at the Discover Center in Kansas City. The sponsors’ main educational message for Missourians: renewable fuels save money, cut down on oil imports, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and generate more efficient technologies.
