There is now a nationwide push to phaseout gas-powered cars

There is now a nationwide push to phase out new gas-powered cars by 2035.

Democrats introduced the Zero Emission Vehicles Act, similar to a measure introduced in California last month.

Corn and soybean farmers expressed concern over the California bill that it will sink ethanol demand. There is also a concern about the implication of farm vehicles.
