So first we send a whole bunch of money overseas for liquid fuels which we think is not such a great idea, and so then the try to save some of that money by switching to a different liquid fuel that we now have to send MORE money overseas to get???

Does anyone else see the stupidity in this?

If we really want to reduce the amount we send overseas for liquid transport fuels, perhaps we should build Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors and use their output energy to make nuclear ammonia for transport fuel. And if you really don't like ammonia, we can make liquid fuels from the CO2 in the air and water.

The lump is a natural process and is surely gone to be affecting the sale and the revenue generation in any industry including the chemical and petrolium too.
