The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which requires that a certain portion of America's fuel come from homegrown, renewable sources, is under attack. The standard passed Congress with bipartisan support in 2007 in order to reduce foreign oil imports, create jobs and lower the cost of gasoline. But some have lost sight of these long-term goals due to short-term thinking as a result of the drought. Several governors have asked for a waiver of the required volumes of fuel under the RFS, including Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, and the Environmental Protection Agency has until mid-November to decide. If you look at the facts, it's plain to see that the RFS should be left alone.
