Phasing Out Gas-Powered Cars: How one U.S. Representative says it will hurt farmers
Many in the ag industry are reacting negatively to California’s plan to phase out gas-powered cars.
Last week the state said it would ban the sale of internal combustion engines by 2035. It comes at a time when E85 sales are growing in California and retailers are expanding the number of pumps.
Representative Ashley Hinson out of Iowa says this is an out-of-touch energy policy that will hurt Midwestern farmers and dwindle a key market for the biofuel industry and corn farmers.
