What's the anticipated reaction to this from the current administration? More encouragement for working from home? Don't hold your breath. Congress is still considering whether or not to repeal a previous year's mandate that all gasoline should be laced with even more ethanol.

While this web site always recommends that everyone who drives look for ways to drive less, I just signed a petition to the effect that any ethanol may be too much for some older cars. You may want to contact your elected officials about this, too.
