      If Big Oil Companies were smart they would ratchet the price of fuel
      down until corn stoves, independent oil producers and ethanol
      refineries are conveniently replaced. Only 10% ethanol is needed in
      gasoline to replace the recently outlawed MTBE additives in gasoline.
      E85 fuel for flexible fuel vehicles (FFV) is 85% ethanol.

      A quote from Delta Farm Press, "Salassi said that in addition to
      ethanol, corn also yields other byproducts that reduce the relative
      cost of manufacturing ethanol from that crop. He said currently
      ethanol can be produced from corn for about $1.05 per gallon while
      ethanol costs between $1.27 per gallon if it's made from molasses and
      $3.48 per gallon if it's made from raw sugar."
