Would it be possible for hydrogen to replace the use of oil and gas?

The wide "hydrogen economy" is a particularly cruel hoax .It would not
be possible to replace the automobile and truck fleet with vehicles that
operate on fuel cells. Firstly, the current generation of fuel cells is
largely intended to run on hydrogen obtained from natural gas. The other
way to get hydrogen in the quantities wished for would be electrolysis
of water using power from hundreds of nuclear plants. Apart from the dim
prospect of building that many nuclear plants soon enough, there are
also many severe problems with hydrogen's nature as an element that
present forbidding obstacles to be use as a replacement for oil and gas,
especially in storage and transport.
