Valero Energy (VLO) Resumes Ethanol Production in Linden

Saying the margins have improved for ethanol production, Valero Energy Corp. (NYSE: VLO) announced it has restarted production at its Linden, Indiana plant. It had been closed since last year as margins shrunk.

A drop in the price of corn is the main contributor to the improved margins, as the price has dropped to $7.26-1/4 a bushel, down 14 percent from an all-time high of $8.43-3/4 a bushel.

In February and March Valero has started three plants that had been idled. All ten of its U.S. ethanol plants are now producing. All the plants have the capacity to produce about 110 million gallons of ethanol on an annual basis.

With drought conditions expected to continue on into the summer, it'll be interesting to see if the resume of productions of the plants are premature or not.

CEO of Prodigy Oil and Gas, Mr. Shawn Bartholomae, has his own ideas about the ethanol
debacle unfolding right before our eyes. Pieces continue to come to light about the
government's use of ethanol mixed with gasoline to help promote US energy independence.
"All the ethanol brouhaha began before the US's resurgence into the oil and gas market place,
says Bartholomae.

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?
I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
Drupal. The reason I ask is because your
design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
