What's In The Gas?

By  | 

A major political fight is shaping up in the Wisconsin legislature. The plan would require all gas sold in Wisconsin to contain 10% ethanol by next July. Supporters say that mandate would benefit farmers, while reducing gasoline prices and dependence on foreign oil. Ethanol advocates say the mandate would reduce gas prices by about five cents per gallon while increasing the price of corn by ten cents per bushel. Minnesota, Montana and Hawaii have such a requirement.
