The article informs that comments will be accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) until July 20, 2009 on the issue of increasing the allowable content of ethanol in gasoline to 15 percent from the current 10 percent. A study by North Dakota State University has estimated that switching from E10 to E15 would create more than 136,000 "green" jobs in the U.S., while reducing its dependence on Middle East oil by 7 billion gallons.
