Ethanol strengthened against gasoline on speculation that plant closings and lower output will help alleviate a glut.

A Jan. 16 Energy Information Administration report showed production sank to 784,000 barrels a day last week, the lowest level since the Energy Department’s analytical agency began reporting data in June 2010.
“There’s still plenty of barrels out there but if we stay sub-800,000 barrels we’ll clean that up very quickly,” said Ian Jackson, a trader at SCB & Associates LLC in Chicago.
The grain-based additive was 42.18 cents cheaper than gasoline, based on prompt-month contracts

If one adds all the govt subsidies and its lower gas mileage, ethanol is infinitely more expensive than gasoline.

If they work at it enough, they will manage to raise gasoline prices to $5/gallon before summer season gets here ;) Hiding how they did it is becoming more difficult as if anyone really cared anymore ;)

The reason there is a glut is they cant sell it anywhere but here because no one else wants this crap! If the consumer had a choice, the ethanol producers would be out of business! But, we all know that is not going to happen! The farm lobby is just too strong.
