Meanwhile, the price of E85 continues to trail regular unleaded by only 30 cents per gallon, despite containing only 15% gasoline. Someone will make a killing off of cheaper ethanol production, but I doubt if motorists will see much of a price change.

E85 would have to be $1.00 per gallon cheaper than unleaded at this point, just to break even in cost per mile traveled.
