CBO Paper: The Impact of Ethanol Use on Food Prices and Greenhouse-Gas Emissions, April 2009

  • this analyisis “examines the relationship between increasing production of ethanol and rising prices for food. In particular, CBO estimated how much of the rise in food prices between April 2007 and April 2008 was due to an increase in the production of ethanol and how much that increase in prices might raise federal expenditures on food assistance programs. CBO also examined how much the increased use of ethanol might lower emissions of greenhouse gases.”
