Could we use compressed air as an alternative fuel source?

Using compressed air might be a bit ineffective but we could just use it to turn generators or vehicles crankshafts right? Its sorta the same as wind energy but in higher quantity's. The main problems I see are is it redundant to compress it, it might freeze the machine, explosion hazard (kinda same as gasoline), and it might not as effective powering machines.
