Ethanol and Unleaded Gasoline Average Rack Prices

As of March 2007, the rack price of ethanol was $2.31 versus $2.02 for unleaded gasoline--a difference of 29 cents per gallon.  The ethanol rack price was 19 cents higher compared to the price in February but 11 cents lower than a year ago.  Unleaded gasoline's average rack price was 28 cents higher than the price in February and ten cents higher than a year ago.  Gasoline prices rose in response to scheduled and unplanned outages at refineries, surging demand at the start of driving and agriculture season, and the backwardation in some arenas of the markets.
