Today (Oct. 21), the Sedalia Rotary Club welcomed Tom May, the Director of Employee Public Relations with the MFA Oil Company in Columbia, Mo., who spoke on the advantages and disadvantages of ethanol, which makes up 10% of every gallon of gasoline in cars today.
As the days of buying cheap gasoline pass into the American history books, more and more of us are driving fuel-efficient vehicles as a means to combat those steadily rising gas prices.
That is, unless you happen to have enough money to not give three screaming squirts about how much gas prices go up...
