(MACCHIAROLA):
"AS WE GET READY TO HIT THE ROAD THIS SUMMER, AMERICAN CONSUMERS ARE ENJOYING LOW FUEL-PRICES--AND CLEANER AIR.  JUST A FEW YEARS AGO, WE COULD NOT HAVE IMAGINED THAT THE UNITED STATES WOULD DRAMATICALLY INCREASE OUR OIL- AND NATURAL-GAS- PRODUCTION AND REFINING--WHILE, AT THE SAME TIME, BRING AIR-EMISSIONS TO THE LOWEST LEVELS IN A GENERATION.  WE HAVE DONE JUST THAT; THROUGH AMERICAN INNOVATION AND INGENUITY, WE ARE EXPERIENCING AN 'ENERGY RENAISSANCE'.  TO HELP CONTINUE THIS SUCCESS, WE NEED TO SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGE HARMFUL POLICIES, LIKE THE 'RENEWABLE-FUEL STANDARD'--WHICH FORCES DRIVERS TO USE HIGHER ETHANOL-BLENDS THAT THEY DON'T WANT OR NEED.  NEARLY 85-PERCENT OF VEHICLES ON THE ROAD WERE NOT DESIGNED FOR HIGHER ETHANOL-BLENDS, SUCH AS 'E-15'--WHICH COULD THREATEN ENGINES AND FUEL-SYSTEMS.  ADDITIONALLY, THE INDEPENDENT EXPERTS AT THE 'CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET-OFFICE' FOUND THAT FORCING HIGHER ETHANOL-CONSUMPTION--PAST THE LEVELS SET BY LAW--COULD COST MOTORISTS UP TO AN ADDITIONAL 26 CENTS, PER GALLON.  THROUGH COMMONSENSE-REFORM, WE CAN DO BETTER; THAT IS WHY WE CONTINUE TO URGE CONGRESS TO FIX THE BROKEN ETHANOL-MANDATE."
