Indianapolis 500 Drivers Burning Rubber and Ethanol

This year, the Indianapolis 500 went green with participating racers burning ethanol.It works in favor of the venue, as ethanol actually increases the cars performance. The cars used a blend of 90 percent methanol and 10 percent ethanol, with a goal of running on 100 % ethanol in 2007.
Setting the pace with green fuel may inspire avid fans and consumer shifts and trends.

30% of gasoline in the U.S. is currently blended with ethanol, the corn-based fuel additive.
Like any other fuel source- supply and demand dictate prices and the recent demand for ethanol have increased prices. New ethanol plants are on the rise ,with plans for 33 underway in the US
