No to ethanol

It's time for the public to realize that the great ethanol program is not what it was designed to do. First, it does not work well in cars made before 2007. Second, the emissions are more toxic from ethanol than from regular gasoline. The fact is that ethanol costs more per gallon to refine than regular gas, but the government subsidizes farmers to grow the corn! Finally, there is a glut of ethanol and not enough demand for it.

It's time to tell all of your elected officials that we don't need or want to have ethanol mandated to us. Stop the subsidies and have the farmers grow food that humans can eat! Next time you go and buy gas, find out where you can buy gas that does not contain ethanol, if you can shop there.
