It's encouraging that Trump is keeping his promise to trim back EPA regulations, e.g., his pledge to end the war on coal.
However, there's one promise Trump made that conservatives wish he hadn't made -- his pledge to keep the ethanol-in-gasoline requirement. And dammit, he did it. See Trump's agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, declares that 'ethanol is here to stay'.
And here's an interesting reaction. Increasing number of Americans are willing to drive farther, pay more for ethanol-free fuel. That article contains a link to pure-gas.org which purports to direct drivers to stations that sell gasoline without ethanol.
What's the harm in using gasohol? A casual web search suggests there's not a consensus. Many newer cars have been built to handle it. But the older vehicle owners might consider an additive along with a fill-up to prevent damage. The same holds true with small engines in mowers and boats.
Whether there's potential harm or not, the government should not be picking winners and losers.
