The borders of the Corn Belt have always been fuzzy. The sprawling patchwork of cornfields that spreads across the Midwestern United States is one of the most productive agricultural regions on Earth. Over 36 percent of the world’s corn comes from the US, and almost all of that is grown in the handful of states nestled between the Great Plains to the west and the Appalachian Mountains to the east. But the Corn Belt is on the move. Over the past couple of decades, farmland devoted to corn production has been creeping northwards and westwards. In North and South Dakota, grasslands that were formerly used for cattle grazing or set aside for conservation have been converted to cornfields. Between 2005 and 2021, the area of land harvested for corn in the US increased by around 14 percent. One of the big drivers of this shift has been bioethanol—transportation fuel usually made from fermented corn. Since 2005 the US government’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) has mandated that gasoline producers...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- At certain gas stations, you might find some sticker shock, but in reverse. Can a price of $3.29 per gallon be real these days? Yes, but it's for E85, not gasoline."E85 is a blended fuel that has up to 85% ethanol in it," said Megan McKernan, manager of the AAA Automotive Research Center in Los Angeles.E85 is made from corn, and its largest market is in the Midwest, where the corn is grown. I did a story on E85 14 years ago at the only station in Greater Los Angeles that sold it, Conserv Fuel in Brentwood. Today, its available at over 300 stations in California, dispensed alongside gasoline. But you need a special kind of vehicle to use it."Flex-fuel vehicles are built to be able to handle this blend of up to 85% ethanol," McKernan said. "It just depends on how the engine is manufactured."Typically, from domestic brands, and often those models that are likely to end up in fleets. One word of caution: fuel economy will drop a bit using E85 instead of gasoline....
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Gasoline prices in the region remain high, averaging $4.31 a gallon in western Pennsylvania on Monday. There’s been a lot of talk – but little action – on a state gasoline tax holiday. READ MORE: Delivery Driver Struck With Gun, RobbedAfter gasoline prices spiked above $4 a gallon in Pennsylvania, several lawmakers said it was time to take a tax holiday from the state’s 58-cent a gallon gasoline tax, one of the highest in the nation. But until this week, it’s been mostly just talk. In this state, gasoline taxes are a huge chunk of the price you pay at the pump – at least 76 cents on every gallon – 18 cents in federal tax and 58 cents in state tax. In mid-February, Rep. Tony DeLuca, D-Penn Hills, proposed a six-month pause in collecting the state gas tax.  In early March, Rep. Ryan Warner, R-Fayette County, proposed a state gas tax holiday for the rest of the year. But neither bill has been formally introduced, as both lawmakers have been seeking co-sponsors in Harrisburg. “Some people...
    LOS ANGELES -- As gas prices continue to climb, thieves are turning to steal gas through a variety of ways that include targeting gas stations or individual vehicles."Always concerned about any type of automotive crimes that could be happening to consumers," said Doug Shupe with the Auto Club of Southern California.

    (CNN/CBS13) — A rise in global crude oil supply could put the brakes on surging gasoline prices that have hit record levels in California. According to the International Energy Agency’s latest market report, global oil supplies jumped by 1.4 million barrels per day in October, with the United States accounting for half that increase as Gulf of Mexico output recovered from the damage caused by Hurricane Ida in August.

Prices for US and Brent crude oil are trading near six-week highs at $80.15 and $81.62 a barrel. That’s left drivers in California paying a record $4.68 per gallon for gasoline, according to AAA.

    Americans who have been cooped up at home over the past year during the COVID-19 pandemic will likely pay $3 a gallon for gasoline when they emerge from lockdowns this summer and resume traveling, economists say. Motorists in the United States have not paid an average of $3 per gallon since 2014. As of Tuesday, drivers in California, Hawaii, Washington State, Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Alaska, Arizona, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia were paying an average of more than $3 per gallon. California motorists are paying an eye-popping $3.88 per gallon - the highest rate in the country, according to the American Automobile Association.  ‘Three-dollar gas will be the norm by Memorial Day,’ Robert Yawger, director of energy futures at Mizuho Securities, told CNN. ‘We've been trapped inside for a year.

    (CNN)Porsche is making a big push to go green. By 2030, the high-performance automaker says it will be "carbon neutral" and that 80% of the cars and SUV it makes will either be electric or plug-in hybrids. One model, in particular, will be the final holdout and will continue to run on gasoline for the foreseeable future, said Porsche's head of global sales, Detlev von Platen. The 911.Volkswagen could soon steal Teslas crownEven more than most high performance cars, the Porsche 911 is defined by its gasoline engine as much as its unique teardrop profile. Its six-cylinder engine is mounted over the rear wheels, putting a significant mass of weight far behind the driver and giving the car a distinctive feel when driving on a twisting road. The car is iconic to the Porsche brand, representing it more than any other. The company has built over a million examples over multiple generations since 1963.Porsche is also working with several energy companies on a carbon-neutral artificial fuel that can be burned in internal combustion engines without contributing to global warming.

    The Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon have been ramping up for weeks. Hide Largely peaceful protests have been in the city streets since May, and videos of federal officers using tear gas against protesters have been viewed nationwide. The Portland protesters have kept the Black Lives Matter movement going strong, but apparently not everyone in the city is a fan of the protests. Hide Jay’s Garage, an attendant at Portland gas station, refused service to a customer seeking gas on Tuesday. His reasoning? The man looked like “one of those Black Lives Matter protesters,” according to a Facebook post about the interaction. Dom DeWeese was looking to fill a simple red gas container to tote back home. His lawnmower needed filling, and, as he stated in a video posted to his Facebook page, he had mole holes on his property that needed dealing with. When he arrived at the station, however, an older white attendant turned him away. The attendant indicated that DeWeese looked like an “arsonist.” “You haven’t seen the news?” the man asks...
