When we compare alternative "mobile" energy, is there a place where the total efficiency or pollution cost is compared among the leaders?

Burning petroleum is the leading "mobile" energy source. Electricity is being advertised as being a possible replacement. However, electricity is not an energy source, it is produced from some other energy source, stored in batteries and then utilized in the mobile device (cars, trucks, trains, planes). My request is to compare the cradle to grave costs including the cost of source production, refining, distribution and waste disposal/recycle.
