Unlike petroleum and coal, corn is very efficient because it is farmed and is widely grown. Since ethanol comes from a renewable energy source, it is cheaper than gasoline alone. The automotive industry is slowing changing and carmakers are well aware of that by producing “flex-fuel” cars that can safely run on blends up to 85% ethanol. In October 2010, the EPA granted a waiver that allowed cars with the model year (my) of 2007 and newer to use E15.

The use of ethanol is increasing and we can expect to see price wars between gasoline and ethanol companies as soon as summer starts (hybridcars.com).
