How to spend even more $$ on ethanol: Kansas lottery offering E85 truck prize

Ethanol makers already get a 51-cent a gallon subsidy from the U.S. government. This hasn't made E85 available at every corner filling station (but E10 is pretty popular), even though there are millions of E85-capable vehicles driving on American roads right now. In case you don't think this subsidy is enough money thrown after ethanol – and don't have a problem with gambling – then head over to Kansas and get yourself a ticket for the new Trucks & Bucks scratch-off game.
The Kansas lottery is giving away a 2007 GMC Sierra E85 Crew Cab Pickup in the Trucks & Bucks scratch-off game, but only if your ticket is a loser. The Sierra is part of a second-chance drawing that will take place in early May. The lottery has given away a GMC truck for the past three years.

Kansas Governor Sebelius says the prize is a way to "promote an industry that is increasingly important to Kansas." I'm pretty sure she means the ethanol industry, and not the " stock market for the poor."
