Does EIA have ethanol price data?

EIA publishes futures prices for ethanol each business day in the Prices section of Today In Energy.

There are historical, average annual prices for wholesale ethanol and E85 for two years, and a forecast out 20 to 25 years, in Table 12 (Reference Case) of our Annual Energy Outlook.

There are also average quarterly prices for E85 on the website of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center.
