Correctly observed the cost to produce corn ethanol gas/moonshine
liquor 90/10 is $0.85 to $1.00 per gallon. Accumulate corp, local,
state, federal, road taxes and ethanol fuel cost roughly $3/gallon
with farm corn selling $2-$3 per bushel. The cost of ethanol explains
why OPEC ratchets gasoline about $3/gallon. The feds subsidize Archer
Midland Daniels with half the US subsidies by paying AMD for the corn
purchased to refine into ethanol. In addition to federal subsidies,
loans, and grants, states like Calif and NC subsidize solar and
renewable fuels at 40% to 50% of actual installation cost.
No matter your work or political persuasion, the Feds, states,unified
countries and diversified governments survive and thrive controlling
one's financial energy with taxes, subsidies, loans, and grants.
Whole kernel shelled combine or silo corn direct grown or farm
purchased is recommended as compared to processed, refined, liquified
corn mesh at the mill or market.
The working person paying bills is not into the blame game. (S)he
must control the bottom line. The blame attitude was well worded last
week by Ali Gore and I quote: "I don't blame individual home owners
like me. The public and governments are to blame for the polluting
Correct my english but does not VP Gore presently accept financial
reward because he once sat in the second highest office of government
in one of the most influential and largest of countries? So the
public is at fault and the government to blame for Al's home that
produces 1000 tons pollution each year.
