Old300D is right, Brazil has it right, Corn is not nearly as efficient as Sugarcane. Brazil does not have to import any oil for it's internal needs with it's sugarcane for ethanol and their oil reserves. It is the US govt supporting the corn growers/lobbyists instead of asking them to grow sugarcane.

We grow corn & beans in the Midwest, not cane.
The grain growers in the Midwest are doing something on their own
maybe you should invest in ethanol plants in Hawaii, Louisiana and Florida.

Hey if we here in the Midwest want to pay $1.85 per gallon of E85 that’s
what we’ll do. Other wise they can cough up $2.42 gl.

We are not the type to sit around and whine and complain, these people are
the movers and doers.
