Ethanol vs Biodiesel vs Gasoline
Ok I'll add a bit more. I have been doing some reading on ethanol (which I wasn't sure if it was considered a biodiesel, I now realize it isn't) because of the most recent West Wing episode where they are campaingning in Iowa. If you want to win in Iowa you have to drink the ethanol kool aid.
I then read an article about the true cost of ethanol. This only made things less clear and I was hoping that some of you, that may have read more than I, can clarify some of the issues.
What is the true cost of ethanol, gas and biodiesel? I would like to limit this to the production and distribution costs, not environmental clean up or military protection of middle east oil fields. Feel free to discuss those costs, but break them out seperately so we can at least try to compare oranges to tangerines and not apples to lemons.
