There is a CO2 shortage...no, really.

 

No beer for you...

 

"Bob Pease, the chief executive of the Brewers’ Association in the US, has said that CO2 prices have shot up by 25% since lockdowns began, due to the lower supply in circulation."

Re:Start charging more for CO2, offset the price of ethanol.

I guess the ethanol producers will have to start charging more for the CO2 in order to offset the low price of ethanol.

I think Airgas owns some of the bravo dome co2 Wells in New Mexico. 

Likely some Wells are owned by oil companies too.  The oil folks pipe their co2 to Odessa Hobbs Midland and inject that to drive crude up the oil wells there. 

Exxon is drilling a bunch at Hobbs NM.  $170billion cost project. 

Sounds like the Permian Basin has more oil than Saudi. 

I think more Ethanol will Have to produce More E to thus produce co2.

Maybe trump and the political caste will figure the afore out. 

It's Easy to over ride trump as needed. Just takes some demopublicans W Guts of right and wrong.
