(MACCHIAROLA):
"THE TRUMP-ADMINISTRATION IS STILL CONSIDERING A MOVE THAT WOULD PUSH MORE 'E-15'--OR 15-PERCENT ETHANOL--INTO THE FUEL-MIX--BY REMOVING RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE DURING THE SUMMERTIME-MONTHS, AND MAKING IT AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND.  SUCH A DECISION, THOUGH, WOULD BE ANOTHER STEP IN THE WRONG DIRECTION:  'E-15' CAN DAMAGE THE ENGINES AND FUEL-SYSTEMS OF VEHICLES THAT WERE NOT DESIGNED TO USE IT--WHICH ACCOUNT FOR NEARLY THREE OUT OF EVERY FOUR VEHICLES ON THE ROAD TODAY.  NOT ONLY CAN THAT RESULT IN COSTLY REPAIRS, BUT CARMAKERS ALSO SAY THAT USING 'E-15' COULD VOID WARRANTIES.  INCREASING THE AVAILABILITY OF HIGHER-ETHANOL-BLENDED GASOLINE IS BAD FOR CONSUMERS--AND IS ANOTHER SYMPTOM OF THE BROKEN 'RENEWABLE-FUEL STANDARD', ALSO KNOWN AS THE 'ETHANOL MANDATE'.  AMERICA'S ENERGY-SECURITY HAS INCREASED, AND OUR RELIANCE ON IMPORTED CRUDE-OIL HAS BEEN REDUCED--NOT BY USING MORE ETHANOL--BUT, RATHER, BY THE GREATER ABUNDANCE OF RELIABLE AND AFFORDABLE DOMESTIC OIL AND NATURAL-GAS.  THE TRUMP-ADMINISTRATION SHOULD STAND FIRM, ON THE SIDE OF CONSUMERS--AND REJECT THIS PUSH FOR MORE 'E-15'."
