Portland, Oregon is known as a pretty environmentally conscious city. The city has an Office of Sustainable Development and wants to help residents find car pool partners. Soon residents can add the fact that every bit of transportation fuel sold at gas stations in the city is at least partly made of biofuel to the list of what makes the city so green. On Wednesday, the Portland City Council approved a mandate that will require - starting a year from now - all gas stations within the town borders to be at least B5 or E10. Both diesel and regular-gasoline vehicles can use these biofuel blends without modification. Critics of the new mandate say the lack of supply will drive up price for everyone. I think they're forgetting that the biofuel scene will be completely different next year and biofuel shortages will be less likely.
