Much of the corn used to make that ethanol is grown right here in the Midwest.&nbsp;</p><p>Cutting the amount of corn ethanol required in the Renewable Fuel Standard essentially puts a cap on demand for corn from the Midwest.</p> Mon, 18 Nov 2013 13:56:29 +0000 Grant Gerlock 47010 at http://kcur.org Mo.
