Rep. Trail,
  What are you and the Idaho State Legislature doing about the exploitation by the oil companies of Idahoans?
  Some suggestions, if the phone industry is considered a vital utility and heavily regulated by the government, why doesn't it view "fuel" also as an vital industry that needs to be regulated? Surely, fuel needs to be more regulated than a phone line, which I haven't needed since 2003. 
  Best Regards,

provoked international debate about the role that biofuels should play in
our energy system over the coming years. Read on for a concise analysis of
the most important biofuels trends.
