Obama's Four Gallons of Gas Minimum Mandate
By Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), Special to The Hill
The latest mandate handed down from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is so ridiculous, even I was shocked. The EPA has now mandated how much gasoline you must buy at certain gas stations. Say hello to the Obama Administrations four gallon minimum.
This unprecedented EPA overreach applies when filling up at a gas station that provides both E15 and E10, gasoline with 15 or 10 percent of ethanol, respectively, from the same hose.
At the insistence of the ethanol industry, the Obama Administration is pushing E15 into the marketplace, regardless of the serious concerns about the fuels impact on drivers. From its inception, E15 is a study in the consequences of government interference in the marketplace. The EPAs decision to set a minimum purchase requirement is just the most recent example.
The EPA approved E15 for sale in the U.S. using a partial waiver, meaning it is only approved for some vehicles on the road cars 2001 and later.
( * The EPA approved E15 for sale in the U.S. using a partial waiver, meaning it is only approved for some vehicles on the road cars 2001 and later. * ) ... there you go folks, that is the motive and reason for Cash for Clunkers..... someone is lining their pockets with money... and it sure ain’t us.
This is outrageous!
But what that Obama does isn’t?
Thanks for the recent pings my friend
