    bio-fuel is evil. Believe me — once you’ve factored in whatever is necessary to produce bio-fuel at a price competitive to oil (land use, fertilizers, pesticides) it starts looking like a bad idea.

    At a higher price, though (a *much* higher price)…

    but the Good Thing of a higher price is just less fuel use (*much* less).

    At the above URL I make some rough estimates at the ways of reducing fuel use. According to my estimates the 5% target for bio-fuel could be reached without growing any new fuel crops, but by merely using waste products.

    I agree that fuel prices should rise a lot. Fortunately there have been significant increases in the wholesale price, we just need to wait for the retail price to increase accordingly.
