The Renewable Fuels Association defended the Renewable Fuel Standard in its comments on the fourth of five white papers by the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the impact of the RFS. Thanks to the RFS, ethanol "is already making a difference" in the country's energy security, said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen. "Because of the RFS, ethanol displaced the need for the amount of gasoline refined from 462 million barrels of imported crude oil in 2012," he noted.
