“While I continue to support the development and use of all alternative fuels, I have grave concerns about the cost of ‘greening’ our military and the overall impact on our readiness,” said Inhofe in the letter. “It has been reported that the Navy spent $12 Million for 450,000 gallons of biofuel which equals approximately $27 a gallon. When added to an additional 450,000 gallons of traditional fuel, the cost per gallon is reduced to $15 a gallon, still over three times the cost of traditional fuel. Over the last three years we have seen the budget of the Navy drastically reduced, but yet the Navy can spend $13.5 Million on fuel that should have cost only $4.5 Million.”
