The article focuses on the impact of the biofuel energy law on the demand of corn-based ethanol fuel and increase farm product prices both in the U.S. and worldwide. According to the analysis of the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI), the production of corn-based ethanol increases up to 24 percent and soydiesel increase up to 89 percent in 2007. The energy law also features mandates for alternative fuels such as cellulosic ethanol and other biofuel products.
