“Great Green Fleet” and $26/gal fuel http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...at-green-fleet/#ixzz1zX8phjVc?test=latestnews I'm surprised the navy pays as much as $3.60/gal for the fuel it normally uses. I would have thought it much lower. Don't they get a pass on the fuel taxes? I can understand a demonstration project using biofuel, but at 7 times the cost per gallon, this large a scale implementation seems crazy. I would think our economy and taxes would be wiser spent on the $3.60/gal fuel. I would prefer my tax dollars spent wisely and not trying to create a market for a product the administration "wants". "Navy Secretary Ray Mabus’ plan to have half the Navy fleet on alternative fuel by 2020"! I wonder what the side effects are going to be. I recall grain issues when feed corn was being used to make ethanol for gas. http://grist.org/corn/2011-02-11-usda-announces-corn-supply-at-15-year-low-thanks-to-ethanol/ I worry cost my sons chicken fingers, french frys, and my deep fried holiday turkey are about to go way up. Peanut oil prices ya know.
