CORN CHECKOFF PROMOTES ETHANOL IN CHICAGO

Jul, 08, 2014

With corn prices down and an expected record-breaking crop in the ground, IL Corn knows that supporting corn demand is key to maintaining profits. One way to do that is to increase demand for ethanol. Now’s a good time for that, as well, as ethanol futures are running 80 cents to $1.00 a gallon cheaper than gasoline at the CME. To bring attention to this positive price opportunity, the Illinois corn checkoff is running radio ads in the Chicago market encouraging motorists to fuel up with E85.
