This was actually coming from a farmer who supplies Perdue Chicken and he owns several grain elevators so he's dialed in pretty well.

Fortunately, the ethanol plant owner here locally owns several gas stations which all supply E85 (6 within a 10 minute drive from my house). He also supplies corn to local supermarkets...so I know my ethanol fix will be satisfied, I'm just not sure at what price.


This will affect E85 prices as well as corn at your local supermarket we just don't know to what extent yet.
