After falling to its lowest per-day output level in 2011, you might think that ethanol production would rebound. Well, that's not the case as U.S. ethanol production dipped again last week while as export demand depleted stocks by nearly three percent.

U.S. ethanol production fell 3.5 percent for the week ending July 8, down 32,000 barrels per day (bpd) from the prior week. Ethanol producers shouldn't worry much, since this is up six percent from the same time frame in 2010 and most biofuel refineries in the U.S. are reporting profitable margins.
