GoVols! is on a distinguished road
I forgot to mention that prices on most agricultural commodities have gone up due to this crap as well. Meat is more expensive because the corn fed to the animals is more expensive. Soybeans and other crops have increased in price due to smaller harvests brought about by farmers switching their land over to corn, etc...

Corn Ethanol is a racket created to buy votes from farm states and appease the greenies. In reality, it does nothing to help the environment and it increases costs across the board. Plus, since the US is the world's largest exporter of corn, as more countries buy into this garbage we'll all see commodity prices go up further.

Keep in mind that this is coming from a person living in Nebraska on the border of Iowa. We grow quite a bit of corn around these parts.
