With gas prices in December seeing the biggest jump in 18 months, consideration of alternative fuel development moves to the forefront.
“Gas price certainly reinvigorates the conversation,” said state Sen. David Givens, R-Greensburg. “The advances that we are making are incremental, but substantial nonetheless. Those efforts were ongoing when fuel prices went down and will certainly be more in the spotlight now.”
Givens was part of a state task force that a year ago made recommendations for biomass and biofuels development in Kentucky.
