Military paying $59/gallon for green Jet Fuel....reg jet fuel $3.73/gallon


quote:

“In March, Gevo entered into a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency to supply the U.S. Army with 3,650 gallons of renewable jet fuel to be delivered by the second quarter of 2013,” Gevo announced this week in its first quarter financial report. “This initial order may be increased by 12,500 gallons. All shipments will be at a fixed price of $59 per gallon during the initial testing phase. These shipments are in addition to the renewable jet fuel supplied to the U.S. Air Force (USAF) and the U.S. Navy (USN).”

Have to payback the president's supporters somehow. After all Obama is the green president, Amirite? Just look how many green sector jobs he has created. Only thing keeping America from collapse.

Air Force One burns about 3600 gal per hour so that's about how long that first order will last.

Phtttttt, gone in an instant. A lot of good this supplier is doing for a very high price.

Green energy programs = crony capitalism.

I saw this the other day and was going to make a big deal till I realized we were talking about less than a million in total cost. This is just a little amount of gas for testing...

This is just one instance that we have been made aware of, we have all heard about $50 hammers bought by the military in the past. That million dollars represents 10 years of taxes for a family making over $300,000.

Not quite we have been buying this shite for nearly four years, the theory behind it is DOD buys enough of this crap to drive prices down thereby creating a feasible civilian market.

Nope not so much, refueling missions you have to ask the tanker what type of gas he is hauling, green shite or JP8.

Couple of buddies over there, tracked one down and know he wasn't on it, he is checking on the rest for me. So I am impatiently waiting for words. But we did hoist a few yesterday for our brothers and sisters.

The purchases would have to be up in the billions for them to have any impact on the market.

Read a report about the metric shite ton of this shite that the Navy has shoved into ships to burn as well, the DOD has been used as a economic tool for years.

Agreed, that is why the push to cerify all airframes to burn this stuff, then guess who will get "incentives" to fly it on commercial flights?

Forward baby Forward
