said by Jack_in_VA:Its more complected now than this statement said by PrntRhd:
No, it is this years drought cutting back on projected corn supplies which means no surplus corn to make ethanol for gas without driving food supply costs up before an election.
Congress critters do understand they are in the line of fire if that occurs.
So much for upping the ethanol to 15% like some proposed.
So far the EPA (Obama administration) has refused to lower the mandate for 10 percent not wanting to anger the corn farmers who could care less about driving up the food prices. It benefits them and that's all they care about.
