Well, as the Gipper used to say, “Here we go again.”
This “industry” is subsidized by taxpayers on two sides – direct subsidies to growers – and an ethanol “surcharge” at the pump, as ethanol costs more than plain gasoline, meaning you pay more at the pump to buy it. Additionally, for that extra charge you get lower gas mileage and, ironically, produce more particulates per mile due to that lower gas milage (burning more material in your engine for the same gas mileage as you would burn with just plain gas.)
Seriously, are there still conservatives out there who think Newt is one of us?
How many times does he have to flaunt his globalist-elitist enviro-wackoism before you take him off your “conservative hopefuls” list? Does he need to come over to your home and flash his “green” card credential or show you his membership card in the Council on Foreign Relations?
Please, scratch him off your “conservatives” list once and for all.
