Earlier in the day, the American Petroleum Institute (API) launched a new TV and print campaign to disparage biofuel use synonymously as gas prices took a sharp rise with the national average of 14 cents per gallon in one week. In response, Fuels America sent out a statement saying, “API’s new ad campaign is another example of how out of touch the oil industry is with real Americans. But using stock images of blue collar workers to demonize our domestic renewable fuel industry, not to mention the nation’s auto mechanics, is a bizarre new low.”

Dear Fuels America, Hannie59 says, "It is low, and bizarre. But nothing new."

"Stop driving,drive only when needed! More home BBQ's. the industry is play games with us.When parks and malls feel the pinch gas comes down! They rise the price high, then step back. All they want is us to except high prices. We don't have to!"

That's the beauty of owning something flex fuel, even if you don't use much more than the standard 10% most of the time. So long as there's an E85 retailer near by, you can switch over and use that while gas prices are unacceptably high, then go back to gas when it comes back down to a more acceptable level.

What would the American housewife do if her food budget fluctuated like her gasoline price?

Interesting how gas prices and the overall cost of pulling oil out of the ground keep increasing, while the cost of alternative fuels (and energy) continues to drop as biofuel, solar, and wind increase efficiency.

darwinfinch, it's been good knowing you. The food producers are one of many who use ethanol as a scapegoat.

In related news, also note that corn commodity prices are way down. Given that the beef and pork producers have been screaming about corn prices so much in the past year, I'm anxious to watch the food prices across the country drop! ::holds breath::

There is always an excuse as to why prices are going up. They never seem to come down though!
