Cash Ethanol Prices Tumble as Plants Restart

U.S. spot ethanol prices fell for the fourth straight session Thursday on the back of rising supply as some ethanol plants resumed operations after being down during the summer. Valero said its processing plant in Albion, Neb., restarted during the first week of September while its Linden, Ind., plant restarted during the second week. The two Valero plants were temporarily shut in June due to low margins but have now been restarted in coordination with the new corn harvest, said spokesman Valero Bill Day. The restarts showed up in federal production data, which jumped 2% last week.
