Phillips 66 Chairman and CEO Greg Garland's claim that the Renewable Fuel Standard is "unworkable" isn't backed up by facts, according to Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen. "The RFS is a proven success having stimulated investment, created jobs, and significantly lowered our dependence on foreign oil," Dinneen writes. Contrary to Garland's assertion that there is wide opposition to the RFS, a nationwide survey early this year found that 64% of Americans back the RFS as a means to cut the country's reliance on imported oil and reduce carbon emissions, Dinneen notes.
