(MACCHIAROLA):
"OUR LATEST POLL ON THE 'RENEWABLE-FUEL STANDARD' SHOULD SEND ANOTHER STRONG SIGNAL, TO POLICYMAKERS, THAT FIXING THIS BROKEN MANDATE IS DESPERATELY NEEDED:  NEARLY THREE-FOURTHS OF OUR RESPONDENTS AGREE THAT SUCH REGULATIONS COULD MEAN INCREASED COSTS, AT THE PUMP--WHILE OVER TWO-THIRDS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT REQUIRING HIGHER AMOUNTS OF ETHANOL.  SEVEN-IN-10 RESPONDENTS ALSO THINK THAT USING MORE CORN COULD INCREASE FOOD-PRICES.  HIGHER ETHANOL-BLENDS COULD THREATEN ENGINES AND FUEL-SYSTEMS ALIKE--POTENTIALLY FORCING DRIVERS TO PAY FOR COSTLY REPAIRS.  AND, THE PUBLIC REMAINS UNEASY ABOUT THAT--WITH THREE-QUARTERS OF OUR RESPONDENTS EXPRESSING CONCERN ABOUT BREACHING THE BLEND-WALL.  FROM RECREATIONAL BOATERS AND MOTORCYCLISTS--TO ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS--A GROWING NUMBER OF AMERICANS ARE CALLING ON POLICYMAKERS TO FIX THE BROKEN 'RENEWABLE-FUEL STANDARD'.  AND, WHILE WE STILL URGE CONGRESS TO ACT, THE E-P-A SHOULD IMMEDIATELY PROVIDE RELIEF FROM THIS UNREASONABLE STATUTORY-MANDATE.
