Ethanol Profits Hit a Wall
Fri, 24 Oct 2014

University of Illinois ag economist Scott Irwin says ethanol profits literally hit a wall in the last month.

With profits averaging more than two times the normal level since March 2013, Irwin says something had to give to restore equilibrium. That something was the price of ethanol, which dropped more than 50 cents a gallon last month alone. However, in during the 84-week streak between mid-March 2013 and last Friday, Irwin says a representative ethanol plant earned a cumulative $66 million profit. That’s more than twice the $25 million in profits earned during the previous 320 weeks.
