Ethanol

November 12, 2013
An ethanol plant sits next to a cornfield near Coon Rapids, Iowa, on July 20. Government mandates to increase ethanol production have helped drive up corn prices leading to marginal land being farmed to produce the crop. In 2012, 44 percent of the nation's corn crop was used for fuel, about twice the rate seen in 2006, according to the Department of Agriculture. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)
