Thomasville- High fuel prices has Georgia joining in the hunt for alternative fuel sources. Gas prices, close to three dollars in Thomasville, has the Peach State looking at other fuel alternatives. Agricultural Commissioner Tommy Irvin just came off a two day summit in Atlanta and is encouraging the state to research alternatives.

"I think we're missing the big bed if we don't get busy with ways to bring on alternatives fuels. One of the things I'm pushing real hard is solenoids out of pine trees and pine waste corn stalks and things like that," said Commissioner Tommy Irvin, GA Dept. of Agriculture.

Irvin believes the alternatives can be economically competitive. Research is already being done at the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech.
