The US has over 1/5 of the world's coal reserves. Coal liquification/gasification technology is proven. Most of the infrastructure for this technology is in place or can be modified for its use. The military has already proven aircraft can run on this kind of fuel. This technology reduces our dependence on other nations for our fuel needs, and puts Americans to work. Between ethanol and coal, we should be able to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and put Americans back to work.
