Jim Woster delivers the facts about ethanol in this week’s Corn Comments segment. BIG OIL and environmental extremists continue in their attempt to tear down America’s clean-burning renewable fuel and the farmers who help make it all possible with misinformation, old statistics and wild assumptions.
Here are the facts:
American ethanol reduces oil imports by 462 million barrels per year.
Just by ethanol being in the marketplace helps average fuel consumer save over a dollar per gallon at the pump and saves the average American family over $1,200 per year.
The ethanol industry has created nearly 400,000 good-paying jobs across rural America.
Ethanol reduces toxic vehicle emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by over 50% when compared to gasoline.
