EPA's decision for more ethanol in gas draws mixed reactions

The Environmental Protection Agency issued a long-awaited ruling Wednesday to raise the amount of ethanol allowed in gasoline to 15 percent for newer vehicles.

Opponents of the decision include the auto industry, environmentalists, cattle ranchers and food companies.
