Ethanol plants slowed, shuttered by drought

Email

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — The drought covering much of the United States is affecting ethanol plants, with a growing number either closing or cutting back on production.

The plants are reacting to spiking prices or limited supplies of corn. Minnesota Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/SMGSSp ) that at least seven ethanol plants have been idled since summer began in Nebraska, Minnesota, Indiana, Kansas and other states.
