    It looks like gas may rise an additional 5 cents a gallon permanently because of the ethanol subsidy elimination. Except it may not be that bad because Congress has just opened the door to foreign imports by eliminating the tariff on ethanol. I wonder how many US jobs are going to be lost over that one!

    Those "lost jobs" should never have been created in the first place.
    Boondoggle from the git go.

    Interesting that the tariff is being lifted.
    About time.

    I guess the ploy worked anyway because we now have ethanol in our gas and increased food and fuel prices as the result.

    If your pissed about high food prices then you should go after the Obama wackos who shut off the water to the entire California Central Valley destroying 80,000 farmers.
