The AgMRC Renewable Fuels Monthly Report is now being produced as a partnership between the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center operated by the Value Added Agriculture Program at Iowa State Extension and Outreach (ISUEO), and the Iowa Grain Quality Initiative (IGQI) (www.iowagrain.org), an ISUEO program directed specifically at grain processing and handling.
Connection of the IGQI and the monthly report will provide a long-term connection with the research and technical expertise of Iowa State Extension and Outreach, as well as provide expanded student opportunities for interaction with industry.
In this article, we review longer-term trends in U.S. gasoline use, causes of the recent uptrend, and influences on that trend from a longer-term perspective, as well as the trend in domestic fuel ethanol use.
The June 2008 issue of the Renewable Energy Report included an article listing ten ways the emerging biofuels industry would impact production agriculture. The article was written six months after the passage of the Energy Independence and Security Act which contained the Renewable Fuel Standard. Now, over seven years later, let’s look at how things played-out.
