So the idea that by legislating 35 miles per gallon, we're somehow going to use less fuel, it would be the first time that it ever worked, because it inevitably results in people taking their fuel budget and buying a larger car. That's why if the customer is not in the equation in terms of feeling pain in the wallet from paying the fuel bill, it's destined not to work.
That's why ethanol is the wave of the future. Take the foreign oil price gouging out of the equation and produce an alternative bio fuel at home here in the States. Then we can drive our cars as much as we want and be in the Green at the same time... Beautiful.

I'm glad he mentioned the subsidized farm land. No one seems to talk about all the corn farm that are paid not to grow corn. That should figure in. I wish he had talked a bit more about Cellulosic stuff.
