Are the fuels of today the same as the fuels of the past? The short answer is no. Fuel and the way that we use fuel have changed immensely over the past couple of decades. There have been three driving factors that have contributed to this change, which we will be discussing in this episode. We will also discuss the impact that government regulation has had on the fuel industry and what you can expect to change moving forward.
