Just an idea

sometimes a blank form is the scariest thing in the world. As I was sitting here thinking about how I wanted to phrase my idea of a personal hydrogen refilling station for a hydrogen run vehicle I began thinking of friction between the road and our tires, which evolved yet again into everyones dream of a hover car and the only answer to that is magnetics. Now as everyone knows opposite poles repell each other. Since creating a network of opposing magnetic poles would be insanely expensive I scraped that idea (another way would be to find the constantly changing frequency of the earths magnetic field and being able to calibrate it every what? nanometre?). So I started thinking about things that exist now by the road. Power lines. Okay current going through a wire creates a circular magnetic field around the wire. Current can be produced by (can't think technical at this point) metal passing through the magnetic field. Now if this works why can't we bury the power lines under the road, use the naturally occuring magnetic field to induce electricity into our vehicles to power electric motors. Use what we already have.

This is what I ask of you, will this work? Or even better could you expand upon this idea? Anything wrong about this?
