As a replacement for gasoline in automobiles, ethanol is touted by the President and Congress as a solution to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. But as ethanol production has risen this year, so has the price of corn, the primary grain used today to produce ethanol. That has many people blaming ethanol for the rise in food prices.
A box of corn flakes only has a nickel’s worth of corn. What impacts consumer food prices far more than the price of corn is the energy, the marketing, the packaging, everything else that goes into bringing a box of corn flakes into grocery stores. In fact, studies show that the price of gasoline has more than twice the impact on consumer food prices than does the price of grain.
All automobiles are capable of running on fuel that is 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline. Flex Fuel vehicles can run on up to 85% ethanol.

Bob Dinneen, President & CEO, Renewable Fuels Association; Elizabeth Lowery, VP of Environment and Energy, General Motors Other factors, including the price of gasoline, are to blame -- more than the demand for corn for ethanol -- for rising food prices.
As the price of gas hits record highs, alternative fuel sources continue to be debated. One alternative fuel which has been touted for years as a renewable, low-emission resource that could replace oil is gaining momentum. More than four million vehicles on the road today can run on gasoline as well as ethanol, the clean-burning fuel made from corn and other biomass sources. The number of stations offering ethanol has also jumped 60 percent since the beginning of the year. Current flexible fuel vehicles can run on as much as 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. A gallon of ethanol is 20 to 30 cents less than regular gasoline, with little difference in ease-of-use at the pump or car performance. General Motors says as much as 30 percent of our gasoline consumption could be replaced by ethanol if it were to become available across the country.
