Lower the federal tax rate on diesel fuels below gasoline levels.

Currently, the diesel fuel tax rate is 5 cents higher per gallon than regular gasoline (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/hs00/fe101a.htm) . Diesel fuel is considerably more cleaner and diesel engines are far more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. Also, a good reason to lower the tax rate on diesel is because it incentivises purchasing of diesel vehicles, which can be run on biodiesel. Biodiesel is one of the top alternatives to regular petroleum, and is much more environmentally friendly than regular petrol. Biodiesel is also compatible with modern diesel engines, so switching over to this amazing alternative would be relatively easy and simple.

Tell the U.S. Government to lower tax rates on diesel fuel, and we can start on the right path to energy independence, and a sustainable economy.

      Switching to Biodiesel will help end our dependency on foreign oil.
