NEW YORK (DTN) -- Ethanol prices in Brazil edged up during the first half of January due to rising demand while supply held steady at the month prior level, according to a market report by Cepea, a research center linked to Brazil's Sao Paulo University.

The average price of anhydrous ethanol rose 5 cents to $2.35 gallon for the two-weeks to Jan. 17, while hydrous prices climbed 3 cents to $2.07 gallon.

Brazil produces both hydrous ethanol, which is used domestically in flex-fuel vehicles, and anhydrous ethanol, which must be blended with gasoline before being used to power regular automobiles.
