March 18, 2014, Chicago, Ill. – A traffic jam on U.S.
railways is playing havoc with ethanol production, storage and production in
some parts of the country.

 

According to a report from Reuters, the coldest winter in
the last 30 years has caused frozen track switches and stalled locomotives,
causing major delays in important hubs like Chicago, which are relied upon to
move ethanol from the mid-west to the east coast.

The result of the delays has been spiking prices in some
ethanol-starved regions of the eastern U.S., and the lowest level of fuel
ethanol stock in east coast history.
