E-85 (Ethanol-Based) Fuel
Popping Higher
When adjusted for its lower energy content,
the ethanol-based fuel E85’S price has
outpaced the record run in gasoline.
Whenever a news outlet runs screaming headlines about a new record in retail gasoline prices, it’s usually citing prices from the driving club AAA’s daily Fuel Gauge Report. But with less fanfare, AAA’s data have also been offering hints about the cost effectiveness of gasoline’s would-be substitute, ethanol.
AAA, with help from the Oil Price Information Service, has been following U.S. ethanol prices alongside gasoline for a little more than six months. Each day, the club posts not just the straightforward per-gallon price of so-called E85, the high-ethanol blend of fuel touted by fans as a potential substitute for gasoline, but also an adjusted E85 price to reflect how much a driver would have to spend on the corn-based fuel to drive the same number of miles as he or she would using conventional gasoline. The adjustment reflects a little-discussed quirk of chemistry: There’s less energy packed into one gallon of E85 than a gallon of gas.
While regular-grade gasoline hit a record $3.577 a gallon on average nationwide Friday, the adjusted price of E85 was even higher, at $3.855 a gallon. In fact, over the course of time that AAA has been tracking adjusted E85 prices, they’ve never fallen below the daily price of regular gasoline.
Since early October, adjusted E85′s price spread over regular gasoline has varied widely, between 4% and 12%, suggesting there’s at least some potential for improvement. However, Trilby Lundberg, publisher of the Lundberg Survey newsletter, which once studied the viability of E85, says it’s “extremely unlikely” that the adjusted E85 price can ever fully close the gap with retail gasoline. (To receive a free copy of the E85 study by email, click here. Free registration required.)
“Ethanol is just not competitive with fossil fuels,” says Ms. Lundberg, whose weekly measures of retail gasoline prices are also closely followed by reporters and energy-industry insiders.
The current mark-up for the adjusted E85 prices over gasoline is around 8%, slightly above the average over the period that AAA has tracked. If that spread persists as E85 gains widespread use in America’s cars, rather than the niche of vehicles now equipped for the fuel, the hidden costs for drivers would be akin to upgrading in the current gasoline-oriented world from regular to mid-grade. When was the last time you did that?
