It seems to me this is a case of politicians not really understanding the reality of the laws they're debating. Blending a little bit of biodiesel or ethanol into diesel or regular gasoline doesn't create nor demolish a "market". These minimal blends don't really effect consumers, except that they reduce emissions and – with increasing gas prices – should make the fuel a tiny bit cheaper. There is always a market for lower-priced gas.
