So now that the ethanol subsidies provided by the United States federal government are scheduled to end this summer, it's going to be even harder to justify E85 (at least in the US). This change will basically make a gallon of E85 cost the same or slightly more than gasoline.
With so many things working against it, are the days numbered for readily available E85 at your local gas station? And should it have ever even been made available to begin with? How much did all that government-backed R&D and tax credits cost us for something that was pretty clearly questionable to begin with?"
