Why didn’t the EPA approve the addition of more ethanol to gasoline?

    The EPA chose to delay its decision permitting gasoline to contain up to 15% ethanol, opting to instead conduct further testing on the effects this higher ratio would have on automobiles. The agency expects to have its final data ready by mid-June of 2010.

    The original push for ethanol as an alternative to gasoline by the government has actually had devastating effects on the global food supply. Since ethanol is most often made of corn, a stable food source, many farmers turned to producing corn for fuel instead of food because their profit margin was higher. According to the law of supply and demand, food prices began to skyrocket and actually caused a crisis in many parts of the world.
