Typically blending in ethanol reduces the price of gasoline, but as we covered last week, rising ethanol prices have led to higher gas prices.

This week will likely feature another slow but steady increase in the national average. Over the weekend, gasoline prices spiked in the Great...

Its not bad enough that we have to use ethanol in our gas but now have to pay more for the ethanol than for the gas.

$3.89.....When the hell are folks gonna get mad enough to get rid of ethanol. It's a friggin conspiracy with farmers, who get the subsidies, and the pork barrel congressmen, and it's the most destructive additive out there!
