Ethanol has become a political football, was originally conceived to reduce the amount of imported oil, should have gone away when we reached energy independence, so unnecessary now, it's a money cow for those producing it, and only they benefit from it. The drain on the corn supply has raised food prices for everyone. When you figure the total energy costs, it's a looser. Add politics and it's a disaster.Problem here is corn has better uses as feed and yet we can't find enough feed for livestock now. This is one reason ethanol is un-sustainable as none of those plants can self-sustain themselves and us Tax payers are still footing their bills. Were still wasting precious Fossil fuel to make alternative fuel. This to me is a Go Figure????
