.

oooh! OOOOH! ...AND... it could also save lives by reducing potential deaths of people that might be involved in a vehicular collisions with a fuel delivery truck.

.

oooh! OOOH! ...AND... it could save lives by reducing demand for fossil fuels, reducing the number of workers needed at terrorism threatened petroleum production plants in less stable countries.

.

oooh! OOOH!.. AND...

.

Interesting technology. The creative hype is unnecessary.
