The Impact of Food Commodity and Energy Costs on Retail Food Prices (PowerPoint)

Research suggests that in the short run, the production, distribution, and consumption of ethanol will create about 20 percent fewer greenhouse-gas emissions than the equivalent processes for gasoline. In the long run, the result is less clear. If increases in the production of ethanol led to a large amount of forests or grasslands being converted into new cropland, those changes in land use could more than offset any reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions. This presentation will discuss both of these issues in the context of current economic and market conditions with an eye toward future impacts of alternative fuels.
