Abstract: It seems that everywhere you turn these days, ethanol is being touted as the best way to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The U.S. Senate recently passed a bill calling for a huge increase in domestic ethanol production over the next 15 years. Auto makers and oil companies run feel-good commercials about their commitment to ethanol. And no leading presidential candidate dares deviate from the gospel of ethanol, thanks to the prominence of corn-producing Iowa in the nominating process.
