"Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, recently announced that the Federal Trade Commission has agreed to examine possible anti-competitive practices by oil companies to limit access to biofuels.

Earlier this month, the senators sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holders and FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez asking the U.S. Department of Justice and FTC to investigate recent reports that indicate oil companies may be undermining efforts to distribute renewable fuels, specifically higher ethanol blends."

Perhaps we should be investigating collusion between the government and ethanol producers. Did you know the government is using taxpayer dollars to buy sugar and then they turn around and sell it to the ethanol producers for 23 cents on the dollar?
