Actually the only reason biodiesel (made from virgin oil) is so high right
now is that there just aren't enough producers making it. And likewise, the only
reason gas and dinodiesel are so cheap right now is because of the tremendous
subsidies our wonderful criminals in Washington pay to the oil
industry. Gasoline would be $10-15 @ gallon w/o the payoff. Just another example
of parasites sucking at the public teat.
You'll have to forgive me, it's just post-traumatic stress syndrome from
4/15. The biggest problem I have doing taxes every year is that I get so angry I
can't read the 1040 form.
All our fuel needs can easily be met by agriculture, and without
chemicals. One of the problems is people tend to look at the wrong crops --
soybeans for biodiesel for example -- very stupid, although because of all the
farm welfare, we currently have absurd mountains of excess soybeans. Soybeans is
one of the worst crops to grow for oil.
Same thing for ethanol made from corn, but corn is currently so cheap,
because of farm welfare, that it's the cheapest heating fuel in the world by a
great margin. Ridiculous -- not only ridiculous, but it's criminal. Why should I
have to pay one penny to support welfare bums who also poison us in the process?
