Diesel from Poop!

Even though the price per barrel of oil in the worl market is improving, many companies are still trying to discover new ways of creating fuel. The biotech company LS9 Inc. is using a single-celled bacteria to create an oil equivalent. These petroleum "production facilities" are so small, you can see them only under a microscope. It's reported that e-coli poop can actually be used to create diesel, but this is still all under study. Wouldn't it be great though to be able to breed bacteria that makes fuel? The entire process may be costly, but at least we won't run out of oil in the future!
