$2.39/gal for E85 in Clackamas, Oregon

Recommended Posts

Yup, Price of unleaded (87) is at 2.37/gal. According to the folks at the station, they are getting a song and dance about the price of E85 from their supplier. This pricing is very unfortunate for those who have made the switch to E85.

2 things need to happen for you guys out west .

 

1. Bio Mass Ethanol Plants ..so you can use whatever woodscraps, grassess ,  moss whatever so you dont need to have grain/corn imported . The Good news is we are heading in that direction anyways as corn is really just a stepping stone .

 

2. No middle men , Stations buying directly from the Ethanol Producer..Which is far easier to do at the Independent Stations .    I sent off a letter to Senator Obama yesterday trying to get him to take a closer look at incentifying Ethanol Plants to either set up their own E85 Retail Locations  like investors have at Utica Energies Renew E85 Stations or  retail partnering with the Ethanol plants to deliver E85 at a discount like Mid Missouri Energy and MFA OIL has done . Both of these Companies continue offer E85 at the best prices in the Nation .   

 

Obamas current plant is one of taking profits from the Oil Companies and forcing the Oil Companies to add E85 pumps at their stations..  Thats the last thing we want is the Oil Companies controlling all the E85 Pricing and they would if forced to carry it.

 

Far better to incentify Ethanol to build out their own retail locations , cut Oil completely out and all the other middle men ..in doing so you lower the cost and are able to offer E85 at the best prices ...and when you do that you are actually competinhg for marketshare ..which causes Oil to also lower their prices ..so everyone wins
