Ethanol plants here in Indiana are closing up faster than K-marts in the 1990s.

Since congress repealed the subsidy on domestic production and the tariff on imports (end of 2011) I assume Brazil sugar cane ethanol is taking over.

Still pretty close to zero net imports from Brazil but it has been climbing for the past year.

The end of 2011, we were sending them nearly 50,000 barrels a day of fuel ethanol.
