But $150 a gallon for jet fuel? Made from algae!
Well, my dear, if green means this, forget it. Our government can use conventional fuel at $2.88 (see article). That would mean $147.12 in savings. And that my friends, would feed a family of four for at least one to two weeks.
Didn't Nancy Pelosi say our government just couldn't cut out anything else? Well I think we've found a place. And maybe if the Obamas quit acting like royalty and taking vacations every other month, we would save even more. I wonder if Air Force one is on green fuel or fossil fuel?
Report: Pentagon paid $150 per gallon for green jet fuel
The Department of Defense paid $150 per gallon for alternative jet fuel made from algae, more than 64 times the current market price for standard carbon-based fuels, according to a report released on Wednesday.
The Government Accountability Office noted in its report that a Pentagon official reported paying “about $150 per gallon for 1,500 gallons of alternative jet fuel derived from algal oil.”
The price for conventional jet fuel is currently $2.88 per gallon. GAO’s report reveals that federal agencies have paid significantly higher prices in an effort to promote biofuels in commercial and military aviation.
