Brazil group plans publicity stunt
An unlikely player on Capitol Hill -- the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association -- is planning a stunt Tuesday at a pair of gas stations on the Hill to drive home its plea to end the 54 cents-per-gallon tariff on imported ethanol.
The sugar cane association competes with U.S. corn growers in producing ethanol that's added to gasoline. It hopes that Congress won't vote to renew when the tariff expires this year.
The group plans to underwrite a 54 cents-per-gallon reduction of gas prices at two Capitol Hill Exxon stations, one on Massachusetts Avenue and the other on Pennsylvania Avenue.
