Read this on another forum site and found it interesting. (and yes, I had to look up fiefdom.... great word btw) The quote was attributed to Cynthia Shelton of the now defunct National VegOil Board. I see a lot of truth in this quote. The greed factor has already reared its ugly head. You only need to look at how suddenly WVO has gone from free to up to $3 a gal in some areas for filtered wvo over a period of less than a year. IMO, as dino prices continue to climb it will only accelerate this industry into federal regulation as eluded to by Ms Shelton. When the government smells money you can bet they'll soon be there to get their share.The VegOil industry is a fragmented collection of fiefdoms that wage war with one another over the internet. At best the participants are brilliant innovators, articulate, charismatic, intelligent, and excited about the future and their role in it. At worst they are poor businessmen, unclear about the basics of customer service and responsibility to each other to build a strong industry before the professionals come in to take it over at a federal level.
