Colorado gets a chance at cheap (subsidized) corn ethanol

I guess they've got to pretty much give it away: E85 fuel will be on sale for just 85 cents a gallon for two hours in Colorado next week. Domestic Fuel says that the special sale on the biofuel for flexfuel cars will take place in the town of Fowler from noon until 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12. The sale is sponsored / subsidized by the Colorado Corn Growers Association, the Governor's Biofuels Coalition (GBC) and Western Convenience. Domestic Fuel calculates that there are about 85,000 flexfuel vehicles running (out of around 300,000 total vehicles) and fifty places to get E85 in Colorado. The Ethanol Promotion and Information Council notes the location of those pumps in the Alternative Fueling Station Locator. The GBC is a statewide organization that promotes ethanol and biodiesel to Colorado drivers.
