Ohio Gov. John Kasich's $7 billion state transportation budget drops long-running requirements for the use of biodiesel and ethanol in the the state's vehicle fleet.

The state is moving away from the biofuels because "it's more expensive to use those fuels," Matt Bruning, Ohio DOT spokesman, told WOSU.

Ohio began mandating the use of biofuels in the state fleet in 2006 with a law signed by former Gov. Bob Taft. Now, gasoline costs less than E85 and biodiesel. Ohio counts 125 fuel stations that offer E85 and seven that offer biodiesel.
