Using data estimation and pooled biofuel incentive information, I compare the estimated rack price of ethanol-blended fuels, including the costs per gallon of related incentives, to that of regular gasoline. The analysis suggests that in seven of the 12 states analyzed, regular gasoline could not be determined to have a rack price less than that of ethanol in a market that ethanol-blended fuels have not penetrated. The results also indicate the areas in the biofuel industry where increased data collection and transparency of information are needed for more complete analysis to take place.
