After all, HE gives over $1.00 per gallon to any one , person , company , etc that lays a hand on the product to get it to us.

How many ears of corn go into a single gallon of ethanol gas? I want to figure out just how many ears I have to touch in order to get a good sized check from Obama…
b b it has been said 2-3. @$4.00 bushel, you do the math. Do not forget that we also get a gallon or so of ‘Drinking STUFF,PLUS lots of left-over ‘MASH’ to sell back to the SELLERS, all substisides by all that pay income tax, State as well as Federal. Good Deal. Keeps more of the Mid-east products out of our Market!!!
error not 2-3 ears of corn, 2-3 bushel
With a corn-to-ethanol conversion rate of 2.7 gallons per bushel (a rate that many state-of-the-art facilities are already surpassing), http://www.ers.usda.gov/AmberWaves/April06/Features/Ethanol.htm
harold, are you trying to mislead her?
Darla, I doubt Harold would dare mislead anyone, being such a high-standing Christian individual in his community.
I have read the earlier posts and have noticed several different answers. Take a look at this one – “It takes a little more than a third of a bushel of corn to make a gallon of ethanol, so, if the cost of corn rises from $2 to $3 a bushel, that adds about 35 cents to the cost of a gallon of ethanol.”. http://www.energyfuturecoalition.org/biofuels/fact_ethanol.htm While most interesting, just who do you believe?
Great website Bob.
