    Tesoro Tries to Block California Rules on Ethanol in Gasoline

    By Paul Dobson
         Oct. 1, 2008 (Bloomberg)
    Tesoro Corp., the largest oil refiner
    in the U.S. West, said it filed a lawsuit against the California
    Air Resources Board to block a regulation that would raise the
    ethanol content in gasoline to as much as 10 percent by the end
    of 2009.
         Tesoro is calling for a review of the environmental and
    economic impact of ethanol, saying it may increase carbon-
    dioxide emissions and have an effect on food prices, the San
    Antonio-based company said in a Business Wire statement. It
    expects a ruling in 30 days to 60 days, he said.
