The Open Fuel Standard (H.R. 1687, S. 1603) will open the fuel market to non-petroleum alternatives, introducing a competitive constraint on the price of oil. This willstimulate economic recovery and protect the United States from OPEC's arbitrary andself-serving oil prices. By making it possible for American cars to run on alcohol andalternative fuels that are producible from American resources, the Open Fuel Standardwill free the nation of its perilous dependency on foreign oil.Once the OFS is in effect, hundreds of billions of dollars will remain here at home,contributing to American businesses and workers, stimulating job growth while slashingour deficit.The OFS will create a truly free market in vehicle fuels.
Together we can create a stable environment for job growth andliberate ourselves from foreign oil.
