$3 Gasoline driving more people to seek out E85 pumps

As gasoline prices across the US continue their inexorable climb back up to the $3 a gallon level and beyond, some of the millions of people who have bought flex-fuel vehicles over the past decade are finally starting to use the flexibility at their disposal. Until recently E85 ethanol pumps were pretty hard to find almost anywhere in the United States.
According to the Department of Energy there are now over 900 E85 filling locations around the country. As the price differential to gasoline increases the reduced fuel mileage of E85 becomes less of an issue and ethanol becomes more attractive to drivers at least.
