Senate passes energy bill, boosting mileage standards

Quote:
The Senate passed an energy bill late Thursday that includes an increase in automobile fuel economy, new laws against energy price-gouging and a requirement for huge increases in the production of ethanol
Quote:
A requirement to produce 36 billion gallons a year of ethanol, as a substitute for gasoline, by 2022, a sevenfold increase over production in 2006. Ethanol would be made from corn and cellulosic sources such as prairie grass and wood chips.
Do You think the oil giants need to worry. If we don't need oil as much they can't make the big bucks.
