I agree with David G. What answer are you looking for? There is a short term and long term perspective and at least one perspective driven by unbridled greed. You can get all kinds of unlearned opinions concerning ethanol. However, fact based economists will tell you if you add up all the costs associated with producing corn based ethanol, including the often ignored/hidden costs of price supports, degraded soils, etc... long term corn based ethanol is not sustainable and alternatives to corn and alternative fuels should be pursued rather quickly. However, not too many folks look at stuff holistically these days. "Man believes what he wants to believe and just ignores the rest"... Simon & Garfunkel ,..circa 1959..from the song "The Boxer"..

longmeadow i would bet that ethanol is more substainable than gas and what are the hidden costs in crude prodution, as to your so called fact based economists you can make numbers say anything you want eather way. a lot of the guys that say ethnol is no good are just mad that they did not by into any ethanol plants at the start
