Haven't seen that, but I don't drive past the E85 station in town. I guess the spread between E85 and straight gasoline is going to depend on the state. Here in Wisconsin, for example, E85 producers get a $.20 per gallon credit that presumably gets passed on to the consumer.

If you look through you will see several gas stations listed in Illinois that are selling E85 for more than straight gasoline. And for other states (i.e. Indiana) it appears that selling E85 at the same price as regular is pretty much the norm, assuming the prices listed are correct.

Around here E10 (with up to 10% ethanol) is always 3c litre cheaper than standard Unleaded.

Guys, producing ethanol costs more in total than gas from crude oil. Without the government help to the tune of around a buck a gallon, we would have no ethanol industry. We aren't close to cellulosic biomass to ethanol on a market scale. Long-term, ethanol isn't the answer. And I speak as someone who has worked in Ag research since 1979.

The local news up here bragging about how they had the story on May 10th, a full month before everyone else picked it up (yet also two full weeks after the incident allegedly happened).
