  2. emg


    nothing will happen

    in fact, sugar may go up higher because sugar is still cheap vs the corn
  4. The value of the $USD will play a much greater affect. I can see the corn lobby getting nervous.

    In some cases even with the subsidies its still more expensive because of the loss of MPG.

    I think Corn Ethanol is mostly a scam. Unless its done like Brazil don't bother.
  5. All this talk about smaller government how come republicans are not pushing to stop this taxpayer funding of private corporations profits?

    This sounds like big govt spending.
  6. More corporate socialism brought to by the Party of the Dumb.
  7. 10% of gasoline is ethanol

    Once the subsidy is gone, ethonal's price will increase thereby increasing the price of gasoline
