Corn Pop Mandates More . . . Corn, by Eric Peters

Ethanol, which is made from corn, is great for corn farmers, but not for those who power their cars with gas. Perhaps that’s why the Biden administration is pushing for more ethanol in gas. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Here’s a great way to reduce the artificially induced doubling of the price of a gallon of gas: Reduce how far a gallon of gas will propel your car.

That’s what Corn Pop just did by issuing a diktat – these are styled “executive orders” to make them seem less diktaty – that “gas” will henceforth be 85 percent gas rather than 90 percent. Another 5 percent of the stuff you pump will be ethanol – alcohol derived from corn.

Supposedly, this will reduce the cost of a gallon since ethanol is “renewable” and made right here, in the USSA. Actually, it will reduce the fuel efficiency of every car that burns it because alcohol contains substantially less energy (BTUs) than gasoline. So you’ll pay a bit less – maybe – but you’ll go less far.

And so, pay more often.

Isn’t it grand?
