American Energy and Farm Groups Urge Senate to Pass Legislation that Will Strengthen Economy, Nation

Carbon Green Energy -- WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Growth Energy, joined by the American Coalition for Ethanol, the American Farm Bureau Federation, the Renewable Fuels Association, the National Corn Growers Association, National Farmers Union and National Sorghum Producers, sent a letter to all 100 U.S. Senators urging them to defeat any efforts that would damage the American ethanol industry’s growth.

you can get gas without the crap ethanol in it, but you pay dearly for it. now that the subsidies have stopped, we the public are making up for the subsidies. get ready for the $5.00 plus a gallon that obummer wants.

Ethanol is a total bust. It takes more energy to make it than it delivers. The only issue here is that the farmers and the politicians want to line their personal pockets at the rest of our expenses again. What else is new? Let's go get our own oil and end this whole debate sooner rather than later.

This relates only to oil and gas. Try to buy gas that does not have ethanol in it.

The ethanol industry is presently the greatest threat to the national economy. Not only does it create a need for the burning of much more fuel for the same distance travelled but it hits the consumer at the meat market and the grocery store as it increases the cost of livestock and poultry production and most production table foods. The production of ethanol is also a source of increased greenhouse gases and contamination which the industry does not truthfully disclose.

neemund said it well: "I'm for freedom of choice. If consumers want to put E5/E10/E15/E85 in their engines I have no problem with a gas station selling it to them. I don't want ethanol in my tank so I should be able to choose not to buy gas tainted with ethanol."

The politicians should stop catering to ALL special interests, and let the free market work!

Ethanol is GARBAGE!!!! It rotted out my tank from the inside!!! Not to mention it's bad for all hoses and gaskets, lowers fuel economy (so you have to use more of that crap to go as far), it uses feed corn ment for our livestock, and it's more expensive to make it with corn than switchgrass.
