How much does ethanol cost the US, that's the question on a post from Say Anything. (http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/how_much_does_ethanol_cost_us/) just to remind us the author spells it out like this...
The other think that’s remarkable in this article is just how much the ethanol subisdy is costing us. When we fill up with a gallon of ethanol it’s costing the taxpayer (you and me) $1.90 in addition to the $3.40 we’re paying the friendly guy inside the pump. Plus we’re paying in higher food prices as well.I'm going to ask him if he's for ethanol from sugarcane... that should be interesting

compared to the 341 million per day its costing America for the war in Iraq, 1.90 a litre seems cheap.......
