1. An apparatus for generating power using inertia of a load in a moving vehicle comprising:
a vessel, located on the vehicle adjacent the load, having a volume that is capable of an expansion and a contraction, and containing a fluid under a pressure; and
a power generator, operably connected to the vessel via conduit, the power generator translating the fluid from the vessel into power;
wherein the vessel is a polymeric bag; and
wherein the load consists of one or more of the following: a spare tire, a driver seat, a passenger seat, a battery, a gas tank, a fuel tank, and freight carried by the vehicle.
