Featured discussion: Do we buy ethanol because we have to?

Posted at 9:06 AM on November 20, 2007 by Julia Schrenkler

Sea Stachura's feature Do we buy ethanol (in Minnesota) because we have to? opens with the following:

You're at this Wisconsin gas station. You're scanning the pumps -- octane 87, octane 93. One pump offers an ethanol blend, E-10, which is gas with 10 percent ethanol. The other pumps contain just gasoline...

...Typically, the gas with ethanol is cheaper because it's subsidized. So which do you pick?

Which one would you buy? Why?

Stachura's report highlights (on a high level) Minnesota, Indiana, Missouri, and Wisconsin's approach to ethanol use. There's a line between encouragement and requirement, and I wonder if we even notice, or care.

Is the price per gallon the true bottom line for you? Join the online discussion.
