MILWAUKEE _ The surging demand for ethanol continues to drive construction of plants to make the home-grown fuel additive. It's also fueling farmers' hopes for better corn prices, although some remain skeptical of ethanol's staying power.
Only about 15 percent full this time of year, a warehouse that holds 3.5 million bushels of corn at Utica Energy LLC in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, is filled to capacity during the harvest season. About 20 percent of Wisconsin's corn crop is destined for ethanol, which is significant considering the state didn't have an ethanol plant five years ago.
