    That is a very good question, and one that many people have been wondering. While it seems to have high hopes for replacing oil as we know it most experts say it cannot and will not be a solution to dwindling oil sources. In 2005 the U.S. produced almost four billion gallons of ethanol and it was nearly the maximum we could produce each year. The problem lies in the fact that even that much ethanol only served about one percent of all of Americas fuel demand. Cornell agriculture professor David Pimental claims that all the corn in the country could only supply us with seven percent of our car’s usage of oil. And that if every car used oil we would have to cover 97 percent of the nation would have to be utilized for corn, and that is just about impossible.
