Could it be... less demand on gasoline could reduce ethanol mandate...

Watch it again. You can clearly see each and every shell has a small cut out of the back. He's rolling it out the back and picking it up with his hand.

He almost never picks the shell straight up but rather slides if forward or back.

I heard a sound bite on the radio about this. Sad part is, too many form their opinion over these sound bites instead of understanding any deeper.

I had never heard of Renewable Identification Numbers and like to think I follow gasoline and diesel market drivers closer than most.

I heard of the RIN's about a year ago. There are a number of these things for the energy market which I have recently seen on CNBC.

FWIW - it's all smoke and mirrors.. and it's just another way to screw the consumer.

We buy ethanol free gas in Texas and Louisiana. Conoco sells ethanol free gas.

How is this different from the carbon credit BS?

Driving through Vermont and New Hampshire this week and the only crop I see is corn for miles and miles. The government subsidies for it (thanks to ethanol) have got to stop.
