Allowing America to be pro-choice when it comes to fuel is what the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is all about and a new ad campaign directed at Washington policy makers is making that point as the oil industry ramps up its anti-choice effort to repeal the law which has helped increase the use of biofuels at the pump.
“We’re talking about the fundamental choice America is facing when it comes to our fuel mix – do we want alternatives to oil or not?” asked Renewable Fuels Association president and CEO Bob Dinneen. “We’re about choice, we’re about market access.”
Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis stressed the importance of energy supply diversity. “Just as you wouldn’t put all of your eggs in one basket in any business, we shouldn’t do it as a nation in our fuel choice,” he said. “Oil has tried everything they can …and now this desperate attempt to change the (RFS) because they’re afraid of competition.”
