HOUSTON (ICIS)--US spot fuel ethanol prices were mixed this week. Demand rose in areas seeing declines in coronavirus cases but remains subdued in areas where cases are spiking.
US gasoline sales at the pump have fallen off since 4 July, according to sources. Meanwhile, refiners continue to raise utilisation rates.
Ethanol is used as a gasoline blendstock, in pharmaceuticals, and in food and beverage applications, such as hand sanitizers and vodka.
