Rick Perry Wants Less Ethanol

Less ethanol...Texas governor Rick Perry is asking for just that from the federal government. He wants the blend amount between ethanol and gasoline to be changed.

EPA administrators, who were suppose to vote Tuesday on the blending regulations, say they need more time to review more than 15 thousand public comments on the issue.

An energy bill passed last year requires nine billion gallons of ethanol to be blended.

Officials now want the EPA to drop it to 4.5 billion gallons because they say the demand for ethanol is raising corn prices for livestock producers.
