Phantom Fuels

The American Energy Alliance released a video exposing the failure of renewable energy mandates that raise the cost of producing and consuming transportation fuels in the United States. The “Phantom Fuels” video tells the story of cellulosic biofuel, a plant-based fuel source that is not commercially available despite federal law requiring refiners to blend 8.65 million gallons of it this year. Failure to blend the non-existent biofuel cost refiners $6.8 million dollars last year in fines assessed by the Environmental Protection Agency. American-based companies were forced to file a lawsuit in federal court seeking relief from the EPA’s rogue penalties.
