The article reports that with the arrival of new environmental regulations, alternative fuels are gaining popularity in the United States. State departments of environmental control have their own regulations, some of which can be even more demanding. In Maine, Jamie Py, president of Maine Oil Association, claims that they have one of the most aggressive underground storage tank programs in the country; therefore they have no problem with the new energy law. The country is using corn as the nation's major source of ethanol, an alcohol additive that burns cleaner than other fuels and reduces dependency on petroleum imports.
