I had meant to make these two points and somehow forget. Gee, maybe the screaming child distracted me...

Anyway, here in Iowa all the state owned vehicles run on 100% ethanol (It says so on their bumper stickers).

Why isn't that an option for the rest of us? We certainly don't have a corn shortage. Wouldn't that just help our state?

And second: Biodiesel. I know that there was a recent government grant for this that makes biodiesel about $1.50/gallon. Why aren't more people using this? Are we afraid of running out of soybeans?

It seems to me that the technology is in place for our country to move away from a dependence on oil. Renewable resources are an option. Why aren't they more readily available?
