EPA to try to fight high gas prices at the pump with ethanol blend this summer
It's the Biden administration's latest attempt to bring gas prices down for Americans.
Deethanolising fuel is the way to go but its a faff and makes a gallon of petrol more expensive, but needs must i am afraid.I would (and do) happily pay more for my fuel that has less ethanol.
Guess we can all switch to electric......oh wait....now their talking about possible rolling blackouts this summer do to increased consumer use of electricity. How about we just drill damnit!!
Didn't take the time to read the whole article. But to my way of thinking our power grid is nowhere near currently capable of handling the total switch to electric. Actually our power grid seems to be somewhat fragile. Not taking anything away from the wonderful men and women who work everyday to keep it going. Just saying Americans in general are power hungry. LolDue to generation capacity or transmission limitations?
Sometimes the wires get too hot and they need to shut 'em down.
Now imagine all of these people will have to recharge their EV's..... The power grids in many states are barely able to cope with regular demand as is..The amount of growth in my area is unbelievable. Thousands of new houses as well as some large factories. They haven't built any new powerplants recently so I hope the ones we have are up to the additional load.
