E85 in Texas Hill Country

H-E-B stores have started selling E85 ethanol blend at select gas stations around the Central Texas area, known locally as the Texas Hill Country. E85, the ethanol, gasoline blend is to be sold at 30 cents less than regular unleaded at these specific fuel stations. Kroger Stores in Texas have a similar plan in mind. "[It's] great for the environment. It's great for domestic fuel use to have an alternative from foreign oil. And it's great for the budget," H-E-B spokeswoman Leslie Lockett said. While ethanol burns 45 to 65 percent cleaner than 100% gasoline, E85 may not be all that it is cracked up to be....

Even with the $.30 discount in Texas, a gallon of E85 does not cost less than a gallon of gasoline; Ethanol production may actually forcing gasoline prices up.

Transfer and Storage contributes to the cost as, ethanol cannot be accomplished via existing petroleum infrastructure that is due to the corrosive nature of the alcohol.
