A government policy that forces ethanol into the American marketplace isn’t smart and it isn’t cheap. Producing ethanol increases the cost of corn, which leads to higher prices for other commodities such as dairy, meat and livestock feed that farmers rely on.
Ethanol mandates are converting our food into fuel and are having an impact on food prices the world over. Here at home, the mandates have increased food costs for a family of four by $2,000 a year.
Not only that, but you're going to pay for these mandates when you're filling up at the gas station, too. Ethanol-blended fuel increases your costs at the pump, and decreases the value of what you put in your tank. What you end up getting is 33 percent lower fuel economy, and more trips to the gas station.
Don't waste your money on the government's failed policy. Tell Congress today that we need to change this policy.
