Ethanol Falls Versus Gasoline

Ethanol fell against gasoline on speculation the corn harvest that’s under way will help companies boost production of the biofuel.

The spread, or price difference, expanded 1.85 cents to 93.91 cents a gallon. Corn is the primary ingredient used to make ethanol and 12 percent of the crop was harvested as of Sept. 27, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. More recent data isn’t available as a result of the partial government shutdown.
