What a mess--another disgraceful sellout by congress to special interests, at our expense.

The article is in Business Weak, cousin to Newsweak. Not exactly what you would call a reputable source. Glancing through it, I see the author uses a study whose authors declared an "oopsy" and revised their work. The previous study lives on, and will for years and years.

I don't see any rationale whatsoever for the ethanol additive mandate. It actually increases pollution, incredibly, and it takes more energy to produce and distribute it than is contained in the ethanol. This mandate needs to be repealed ASAP. This is another shameful fraud forced on the American people by a corrupt US congress. Repeal of the ethanol mandate is a GREAT position for Republicans to take in the November election, but they have to make sure they explain that ethanol actually increases air pollution (and thus does nothing other than boost the profits of agri-business).

What study are you saying is incorrect and was later revised?
