      Choose cost effective energy combustion from local low cost renewable
      environmental friendly whole kernel shelled globally friendly
      neighborhood family farm corn.
      Does the family farm gouge corn prices based on supply and demand?
      How do corn prices vary year to year at the farm?

      Year Corn($/gal) Oil ($/gal)
      1817 $0.50/gal. Oil not available
      1947 $0.20/gal. $0.10/gal
      1957 $0.20/gal. $0.30/gal
      1977 $0.35/gal. $0.80/gal
      1997 $0.20/gal. $1.50/gal
      2007 $0.35/gal. $3.00/gal

      In 1835 the US raised 150,000,000 acres corn.
      In 1997 the US raised 85,000,000 acres corn.
      In 2007 the US raised 93,000,000 acres corn.

      In 1935 Corn energy provided horsepower to 92% of the American homes
      which farmed with horses and mules.
      In 2007 Corn energy will provide horsepower for autos and home heat.
      In 2007 Texas raised enough corn to supply 4.4% of the total energy
      for all 100 million American homes.

      According to the chart, Gasoline & OPEC oil prices double every ten years. Corn prices stay the same. How can corn prices stay the same for so long? ...
