Filling the Pipeline

I’ve wondered when this would happen. 

Ethanol production is increasing ever rapidly…while transportation of the product is proving more dicey than ever.  Since today, it’s generally accepted that ethanol corrodes pipelines and thus cannot be transported in this method, we’re stuck. 

Enter Senators Harkin (D-Iowa) and Lugar (R-Ill) who’ve introduced a bill directing the US DOE to do a feasibility study on transporting ethanol via pipeline from the Midwest to the coasts.
