Fuel Prices

I notice that prices for unleaded gasoline jumped 12 cents the other day then I noticed this story that's making the rounds. It appears that the EPA is fining companies for not blending their gasoline with a biofuel that does not yet exist in production quantities.
Penalizing the fuel suppliers demonstrates what happens when the federal government really, really wants something that technology is not ready to provide. In fact, while it may seem harsh that the Environmental Protection Agency is penalizing them for failing to do the impossible,
This is big government at work, folks. I personally see no reason for the government to be regulating the fuel business at all. This is government over-reach and it's costing us all money.

The sooner we disband the EPA, the better off we'll be.
