Albany -- Georgia Congressman Sanford Bishop says China's growing population is leading to higher gas prices. Gas prices jumped nearly 25-cents in the last two weeks.

Bishop says China is using more oil in its growing manufacturing and agricultral industries, and on the roads.

China's population is about four times the United States'.

Bishop says alternative fuel is one solution. "Some bio-fuel production which we can do plenty of right here in southwest Georgia, whether it's grass, canola oil, peanut or cotton seed oil. That can be used in the blends to stretch the diesel fuel that we have to go much further."

Bishop also says the United States must continue to research the use of hydrogen power to fuel energy.
