Philippines moves to green transportation

Electric vehicles hit Manila's streets to counter pollution and high fuel prices.

    The Philippines, like many other countries, is turning to green energy as the price of oil remains high.

    Currently, the country depends almost entirely on petroleum when it comes to transportation.

    But the government has ambitious goals to combat rampant pollution, and avoid high fuel costs, with new electric vehicles that provide public transportation.
