Why do state and federal governments really like ethanol blended fuels?
Because mandating the use of ethanol blended fuel is a disguise for a hike in gasoline taxes.

Adding alcohol to gasoline dilutes the fuel, and lowers the heat energy.

One US gallon of Gasoline (regular unleaded) = 114,100 BTU/gal
One US gallon of Ethanol (E100) = 76,100 BTU/gal [67% of gasoline BTU]
One US gallon of 10% Ethanol/Gasoline Blend (E10) = 111,300 BTU/gal [97% of gasoline BTU]

So adding 10% ethanol to gasoline requires burning 3% more fuel to accomplish the same task.

Ethanol blended gasoline requires buying more gallons of fuel in order to travel the same distance.

Highway fuels are taxed “by the gallon”, so governments collect more taxes with “watered down” alcohol blended fuels.

WHAT? Who authorized these payments? Payments for WHAT? Payments to whom? Was this spending authorized during a 3:00 AM phone call to congress? By executive order?

Does this just scream of entire Congress being corrupt? The House is supposed to hold the purse strings. Between this appalling amount of wasted tax dollars - no doubt to Obama donors and the full speed ahead of the Obamacare expenditures, is there any doubt this bunch in Washington is totally out of control? Pushing gay everything 24/7, attacking religious freedom, enviro whackos running everything, spending like drunken jerks and being arrogant all the while.

God help us and keep us strong to throw these critters out. This borders on criminal in my book.

Let's have the GSA investigate. Or maybe the DOJ - oh wait..... We are SOOOO in need of dumping incumbents.

Pay my fair share this........ you creeps.

The Administration has implemented a whole scientific assessment, reporting and planning system on the affects of climate change on natural resources such as forests and water. Then there is also a regional decision making or governance structure. This juggernaut is poised to make obsolete any semblance of private property or local elected government regulation. It is pure bureaucracy and either communitarian or fascist in nature.

I don't think they (or CA) got the memo that catastrophic climate change had been largely disproved. It is too convenient a crisis to use as a foil to implement global agendas that level standards of living, place natural resources in central government control and redistribute global wealth. Can't pry the control from their hands at this point. May have proceeded too far. They have implemented a vast machine costing mucho bucks of our taxes.

Perhaps this should be placed on the tombstone for this dieing civilization.

Spent billions on theoretical problems when they could have been improving known nuclear plant safety issues.

Obama’s friends got $68.4 billion to combat fairy dust.

And much of that money will be sent back as donations to help Democrats.

Has any scientist received a second grant once their first experiment elicited a conclusion of - No Warming?

Green Energy, hmmmmmmmmm - - - - - - . Yeah! I saw some yesterday! There it was just basking in the Sun nice and tidy on a green carpet of Bermuda Grass.

I heard a deep noise, turned around and more handy-sized dull green energy packets were falling on the green pasture.

By carefully walking around other drying packets of green energy I found one that had dried out enough to be shipped by air to 1600 Plantation Avenue, in the District of Corruption.

If any of y’all want to send Obama some of these green energy packets from a pasture near you, just make sure that all the water is out of these green energy packets, so that the TSA screeners at the airports will approve and then ship your packets by fossil fueled Jet planes.

The nice thing about these magnificent meadow muffins of green energy is that they last a lifetime if you don’t get them wet.

Yep, all ya gotta do is add water! Well, be careful to not let them hit a fan, or a fan of green energy.

BTW, I changed my mind: the last idea is probably a good idea - - - .
