Just how popular was $2.25 ethanol this past week?

As we oh-so bravely predicted, gas that was selling for about a dollar less per gallon than the national average this past week was awful popular. The price was lowered at a gas station in Indianapolis as a promotional event just before this weekend's Indy 500 race, and the $2.25 cost for a gallon of E10 (I'd heard it was going to be $2.20 a gallon) was enough to bring in the cars, trucks and SUVs whose drivers "were eager to find their place at the pumps," as Domestic Fuel put it. The IndyCar drivers on hand were just a bonus, signing autographs and talking up the biofuel. You can hear driver Scott Sharp give a shout out to ethanol here and see more pictures of the event here.
