    Ethanol isn't only not cost effective as a fuel, it's destructive to engins as well. We should be growing corn for food, NOT fuel!

    A local TV show on public broadcasting about Ohio farms mentions that recent droughts have driven up the cost of corn. This is difficult for farmers who need to feed their animals. I spoke to a couple of people who raise animals and they confirmed that it's more expensive now and sometimes hard to get because there is a strong demand.
    I'm against subsidies in general. Especially for oil companies that are making HUGE profits each year. With Agri subsidies it's politicians trying to buy votes.
