Every four years, the World Cup offers a raw display of competitiveness on a global scale. We see how a level playing field fosters growth and ability, enabling teams to improve themselves by facing one another. The games never fail to remind us how powerful the competitive spirit can be.

This same spirit has the potential to transform the renewable fuels market, but only if Congress lets the 54-cent per gallon tariff on imported ethanol expire at the end of this year. Eliminating this barrier to competition will provide Americans with greater choice at the pump and help stabilize fuel prices.

We hope the next month of competition in South Africa serves as a reminder of what we’re capable of when the playing field is leveled and teams around the world are given a chance to compete fairly.
