Ethanol prodcution is down to a level matching EXACTLY refiner demand for the week, but is still 7% from last year. 1)So hardly a decrease in demand 2) Any spot demand will have to come from inventory, specially with Plant maintenance in full swing. 3) Exports running at 70-80mil gallons per month (above last year) can easily swallow the extra inventory.

In the long term the demand for ethanol above the blend requirements must be developed. The best way is to bring the engine designed by Roberto to use high octane fuel to market. The research for this engine was paid for by the US and Brazilian ethanol producers two years ago. It was reported in the Ethanol weekly news letter in July of last year. The engine is far more efficient than the current gasoline engines and matches the power curve of a diesel without the pollution problems. I think our first targets of use should be agriculture, railways and repowering trucks that operate in the cold climates. I think it would be better then the current move to natural gas as a mobile fuel due to the amount of power in each gallon. It was designed to burn fuel containing 85% ethanol. I like to see if the gasoline in the mixe could be replaced with bio diesel because the biodiesel has more btu than gasoline. I think farmers if given the choice would buy machinery that uses biofuels that is produced from their crops rather than crude oil.

Ethanol Stability Unlikely in Short Term
Given the sharp tumble lower in ethanol futures prices over the last three weeks, it is likely that additional pressure will develop through the next several weeks. This will likely add additional uncertainty to production margins of many ethanol plants, as inventories are likely to grow.[Read Full Blog Post]

I thought this was a website for production agriculture? We have one hell of a corn crop to chew up, so why should you or I care what the price of ethanol is as long as the margin is there. The greater the spread between ethanol and gasoline, the greater the incentive to use the product in this country or as export. I don't see the reason for your concern from the ag production side. We won't address the blend wall issue and/or market access, but I think the old adage of "the cure for low prices is low prices" is applicable here.

If the plants increased production how are they going to ship it ? With the pathetic rail service that is upon us. Some elevators still full of wheat, that they can't ship. This website is more for speculators then producers.
