Startup Says It Can Make Ethanol for $1 a Gallon, and Without Corn

Wired reports: "A biofuel startup in Illinois can make ethanol from just about anything organic for less than $1 per gallon, and it wouldn't interfere with food supplies, company officials said. Coskata, which is backed by General Motors and other investors, uses bacteria to convert almost any organic material, from corn husks (but not the corn itself) to municipal trash, into ethanol."

I can only remember paying under a buck a gallon for gas once in my life, and that was about 8-9 years ago (in the Southern part of the US).
