During this week’s Corn Comments segment, Jim Woster encourages folks to talk about ethanol. And there’s plenty to talk about. South Dakota ranks 6th nationally when it comes to ethanol production and produces an average of one billion gallons each year. The industry employs 1,900 hard-working South Dakotans and those individuals have an average salary of $60,000. To top that, the state’s ethanol industry has an overall annual economic impact of $3.8 billion.
Choosing locally produced ethanol saves you money, safely increases octane, is better for the environment and supports the state’s economy.
