Minnesota Acts First
The squeeze on the pumps has sparked consumers’ interest in other resources for fuel. As the price of gas continues to increase there is an ever more urgent search for an alternative to keep Americans moving. In an article found on cnn.com Minnesota has become the first state to require that diesels use a mix of diesel and biodiesel. The mix only has to have 2% biodiesel but it is a step in the right direction. But the major hurdle this industry will have to leap over is getting their costs down to where they are more competitive with fossil fuels. I wonder how long it will take before we are all driving cars powered by something that was grown by a farmer.
