    1394370060

    E85. It's not just for flyover states anymore. That could be the newest slogan of the 85-percent ethanol blend now that the biofuel is proliferating in areas other than the Midwestern corn-growing states. The Midwest's share of E85 stations fell to 36 percent last year, down from 54 percent ...

    Official: EIA: 2012 monthly average shows U.S. using less gas than at any time since 2007
    1344945600

    124,000 barrels of oil a day sure sounds like a lot, doesn't it? It is, until you compare it to the average daily U.S. oil consumption, which is around 8.5 million barrels a day (bbl/d). At least, 8.5 million was the number in the first quarter of 2011, according to the U.S. Energy Information ...

    Report: U.S. ethanol output dips... again
    1318681980

    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. According to the Energy Information ...

    U.S. Annual Energy Outlook predicts "alternative vehicles" won't top 50% market share in 2035
    1267886040

    Just because it's difficult to predict the future doesn't mean people won't try. See, for example, the CEO of Shell, who said last week that he expects plug-in vehicles to make up 40 percent of the new car market in 2050. The U.S. Energy Information Administration isn't looking that far ahead ...

    1239819000

    We've heard it a million times: What's good for GM is good for America. Well, if low gas prices are good for America (and that is a debatable point), then Charles Wilson's saying does not work the other way around. The U.S. Energy Information Administration is predicting that gasoline prices will ...

    Insert corny title here: U.S. may not meet 2022 biofuels mandate
    1229629140

    Baring a major breakthrough in cellulosic ethanol technology, the US Energy Information Administration doesn't think there's any way that the United States will meet its self-imposed Renewable Fuels Standard. The mandate in its current form would require that 36 billion gallons of ethanol be ...
