The Renewable Fuel Standard is Everyone’s Problem

September 26, 2013

Recently Big Ethanol has been spending a lot of money to sell Americans on the idea that the only people calling for the reform of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) are the oil and gas industry. Unfortunately for them, that’s just not true.

Oil refiners do oppose the ethanol mandate (primarily because of the looming blend wall), but they are hardly the only ones who take issue with the policy. Environmentalists, tax payers, food producers and consumer protection groups of all types, anti-hunger advocates and even farmers have all spoken out against the RFS.

The policy is working against itself—driving up the cost of corn and animal feed while doing nothing for the environment—and costing everyone.

But don’t take our word for it—watch the video above to hear what real people are saying about the RFS.

Now that you've heard from some experts, contact your Congressman to demand change to this failing policy.
