Hey, doesn’t ethanol fuel cars? About 10% of ethanol production goes to cars, yes. It’s been in the news as part of the growing food vs. fuel debate. The more farmable land ethanol-destined corn takes up, the less land is available for growing the food we need to fuel ourselves (and those who depend on the U.S. for food aid), and food prices inevitably go up. Sound like a pickle? You betcha. That is, until all our pickles are diverted to fuel production. We bet the Oscar Mayer wienermobile would be happy about that.
