ABSTRACT
The article reports on the promise of U.S. President George W. Bush to continue his support for ethanol and biodiesel fuels, but urged Congress to quickly authorise more offshore drilling to sustain U.S. energy supplies until biofuels can take over. Bush said he will continue funding to advance development of cellulosic ethanol to broaden the feedstock base for biofuels and to spread ethanol production.
