Crude oil, gasoline, heating oil, diesel, propane, and other liquids including biofuels and natural gas liquids. Periods of price increases are accompanied by high levels of media attention and consumer questioning about the causes and impacts of the price changes. Between January 3 and April 11, 2005, gasoline prices increased nearly every week, and during th... Given the potential for price effects, GAO recommended that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the agency with the authority to maintain petroleum industry competition, undertake more regular retrospective reviews of past petroleum industry mergers, and FTC said it would consider this recommendation. Few things generate more attention and anxiety among American consumers than the price of gasoline.
Section 13218 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992, 8(b), requires each Federal agency to place its annual fleet AFV compliance report on a publicly available website.
Will shifting the United States military to alternative fuels reduce casualties and geopolitical threats?
That is what some are contending. Their answers focus on two main factors: the material and human costs of transporting fuel in a battle zone and oil revenues received by unfriendly regimes.
In a great irony, the lower energy density of biofuels would require even more of the costly and dangerous convoys than the petroleum-based fuels.
To match the energy delivered by petroleum-based diesel, convoys would have to transport 12 percent more biodiesel. Replacing gasoline with ethanol is worse yet, as that swap would necessitate roughly 50 percent more tanker trips. Clearly, transporting biofuels in place of petroleum-based fuel increases cost and exposure in hostile environments.
