Alternative fuels event in Nashville on Thursday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Alternative Fuel Vehicles will be shown off in Nashville and a speaker will talk about the global oil supply.

The event -- part of National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey -- will take place Thursday at Lincoln College of Technology, formerly Nashville Auto Diesel College.

An address by Kerry Perkinson is titled "World Oil Portrait; Our Time is Running Out."

Atha Comiskey, executive director of Clean Fuels of Middle Tennessee, said the event is one of about 160 to be held across the country. The programs are held every two years and sprang from a 2002 program at West Virginia University.
