IIRC there have been attempts to attach it to something like 20 bills making their way thru the house and senate.
Anyone have any more news on this? Trying to figure out the future. Figuring out what collecting oil is going to be like for 2012

less I am mistaken the yellow grease prices have already started to come down. From what I saw for today it was at 33.50 per hundred weight. I coulda sworn that over the summer it was WAY up around something crazy like in the high 40's or low 50's, but I could be wrong on that. It will be interesting to see what happens as 2012 gets here.

Hmm, so that's like $2.68 per gallon, right? Good to know. I've been told by several restaurants around here that they're getting paid $1.10 to $1.20 per gallon right now by renderers. Although one mentioned that they only get paid for "usable" oil. Not sure exactly what that means. Believe it or not, I recently offered a restaurant $1.50 for their oil in an effort to increase my supply. I'm hurtin for oil and $1.50 is still cheaper than diesel. They only give me about 7 or 8 gallons a week though.
