I'd love to use only petrodiesel - but tell the damned Chinese to stop buying it, tell the Europeans to get there own, and tell the U.S. refineries to stop shipping it overseas and maybe I could afford to use it year-round again. Not to mention afford to heat my house in the winter or run any of my farm or heavy equipment. And I didn't even get started on the irresponsible losers in Congress who just let the American people twist on the vine!! But I digress ...........

The floods in Iowa took out corn and soybean fields. They say it will take ten years for that area to get back to full production. That in itself will raise the cost of biofuels.

Yeah congress. what a waste..their brightest idea is to bring back 55mph.
If we quit buying so much junk from china,they wouldnt have dollars to buy the fuel.Now its gotten to be that so much stuff is coming from there,i simply do without the product,if at all possible.

That Chinese crap that everyone is talking about.Is hear because they bought the debt in the american banking speculation network.
Thats right,the only thing growing hear is debt.Now we sell it to countries as a leverage.They in turn give it back to you. Handy little system of crap ,aint it.
