Seems like the EPA decisions to allow up to 15% ethanol in fuel hasn't pleased anybody.
The "against" lobby didn't want to allow the increase at all and the "for" for lobby wanted it to be mandatory.
See, the EPA split the baby and allowed the option to increase ethanol use. I have to side with the EPA on this. Inform consumers and let them make up their own minds.
Critics will imply that consumers aren't smart enough to read the gas pump labels or to understand the risks. (Obviously they won’t go there outright.)
But come on. Informing consumers is everyone's job. And the idea that we should limit choices because consumers can’t be trusted to think is a slippery slope I won’t go down any further than we already have.
