Not to be left out of the price-fixing allegation fun, Nebraska congressman Tom Osborne is asking why there's a $1.20 difference between the wholesale cost of E85 and its current price at the pump. More specifically, he states that the cost difference is "unjustified", citing that 85% of the fuel is sourced from grain and the price should not be directly affected by a jump in oil or gasoline prices. Ah, but the demand for E85 likely jumped with increasing gasoline prices, and from there things probably just followed the standard supply-demand curve. I'd suggest that the congressman brush up on his knowledge of microeconomic theory.
