My reading is of a few plants coming back online is the result of a sourcing switch from Brazilian imports to a period where we will make a little more. With the onesy, twosy plants coming back online, to assume that there will be a glut is early to make this call: total inventory is headed down and crush margin is still negative... 15c loss per gallon on 100million is still 15 million dollar loss. Real money.
