Ethanol Price OutlookEthanol prices decreased in the past month as concerns over U.S. demand started to mount. The spot price registered on 6 October was USD 1.52 per gallon, which was 6.2% lower than on the same day last month. This spot price was down 13.1% on a year-to-date basis, and it was 7.3% lower than on the same day last year. On the supply side, the September edition of the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Short-Term Energy Outlook publication included upward revisions in ethanol production forecasts for both 2017 and 2018. In Brazil, RenovaBio—a federal program designed to cut carbon emissions—is expected to be announced later in October, which should boost domestic production. And in China, the government is also increasingly prioritizing domestic ethanol production as part of the country’s economic development plan. However, in terms of demand, concerns increased over the past month after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced it was considering a string of policy changes that could reduce demand for ethanol in the U.S. from next year.
