A recent job bill going through Congress may mean good things for producers of biofuel in the United States. The bill is for the reintroduction of a tax credit for $1 per gallon of biodiesel produced. The break is aimed at making biodiesel competitive with gasoline prices. Earlier this month the EPA gave soy based biodiesel a pass saying they passed the 50 percent emissions requirement. Many farmers are happy about the new bill saying it will boost their business but many other citizens are not excited about the bill. The Earth Policy Institute states that last year alone grain used to produce biodiesel was enough to feed 330 million people. My question is then whether or not we should be spending this much money on something that may not be the best thing for our country? Is economic stimulus for a remote population enough to justify using an energy source that we don't necessarily need right now?
