So the ethanol drives up corn demand, which drives up corn prices. Corn not for ethanol goes up too then, because there's not as much available. So what we are hearing is that corn for human consumption is worth more than corn for ethanol, and the price of corn to feed people is going up because there is less of it because some of it (apparently that grown on less desirable land?) is grown for ethanol and corn for animals is somewhere in between but still drives up the demand, right?
