What will happen if the EPA raises the amount of ethanol allowed in gas?

    The EPA raising the amount of ethanol allowed in gas would be a great step towards being more green.  The proposal is to raise the maximum ethanol allowed to 15% from 10%, but there are questions as to whether engines could accept this increase.  If it does happen and companies do add the extra ethanol to gas, it would decrease our oil use by 200 million barrells, create around 135,000 new jobs, revitalize crop growing communities, and reduce our carbon emissions.  This would allow us to be less dependent on foreign oil or less dependent on offshore drilling as many people are more concerned with these days.  It makes a lot of sense, but there is a lot of pressure from refineries and engine manufacturers not to increase the maximum level.
