i vote no ethanol.

i see that no is super majority in this forum. however, there is one fanatic, krzysiek_ck (crazy sick chick??? or chuck???), who is a vocal supporter of ethanol. clearly ethanol rule were not put up for vote, or all the no here weren't interested in voting when it was.

Yet you fail to answer simple questions. Why is that?

How exactly is the price effected? Does the transportation cost effect the price as well? What did effect the price of corn more ethanol or the cost of transportation?

TxDaleJr88Fan wrote: "The beef, pork or chickens you eat are all fed corn."

What is the distillers grains, the byproduct of ethanol production?

TxDaleJr88Fan wrote: "I used to be a butcher so I have seen the prices double or even triple throughout the years in the grocery business. And it is still rising. So if ethanol were eliminated, there would be more corn available on the market and therefore would drop food cost."

Do you understand what the corn surplus means? How come you don't include the cost of transportation into your little equation? Did the price of fuels doubled or even tripled throughout the years? Does the dollar depreciation effect the prices as well?

No!!!

Krzysiek_ck-- to answer your question how is ethanol raising food cost?

Since there is less corn available on the market, It raises the cost of corn you eat and corn based products. The beef, pork or chickens you eat are all fed corn. I used to be a butcher so I have seen the prices double or even triple throughout the years in the grocery business. And it is still rising. So if ethanol were eliminated, there would be more corn available on the market and therefore would drop food cost.

No, it is a poor choice of fuel. Pushed by the corn lobby.

Palm beach reports brainwashing of it's psuedo newspaper reporter. More fabricated scare tactics.

GM, Ford, Chrysler, just announced full approval for all 2012 and 2013 models for E-15. ALL of them. You guys think the "changed" any parts to approve this, or do you think they knew all along E-15 was good to go, as haveing been proven many times by the EPA and the oil industry's cooked books study losing in court because of its fabricatory nature?

Yes, but maybe not 10%. I like that we have it as an additive or alternative.

What is "pur gasoline"? In case you meant "pure gasoline", explain how is a mix of about 150 chemicals pure.

Maybe if you blend diesel with gasoline.
