ABSTRACT
This article discusses decisions by the White House and the United States Congress, which the author believes are responsible for the high price of gasoline. Provisions in the energy bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush included what additives go into gasoline and how gasoline should be refined. Corn-based ethanol is replacing the petroleum-derived additive methyl tertiary butyl ether, which the author feels was conveniently timed to meet the demand of summer drivers.
