By | March 27, 2007
The Energy Management Institute (EMI) released results of a study that indicates ethanol is more competitive than it was three years ago. The study looked at pricing data from 80 urban areas across all 50 states, comparing the price trends per British thermal unit with gasoline and diesel. According to EMI's Alternative Fuels Index publication, renewable fuels were 29 percent more competitive overall. The study cites advances in process technology and marketing efficiency for the growing viability of domestic renewable fuels.
