Listen: The highway to high octane: Ethanol's attempts to gain ground in US gasoline

Platts senior editor Herman Wang talks with Jeff Bair, Platts' managing editor for light ends, at the National Ethanol Conference in New Orleans about what this probably regulatory shift will mean for gasoline and ethanol, as well as other octane boosters like alkylate and reformate.

It's a change that will include refiners, marketers, gas stations, carmakers and -- someday -- drivers across America, but the fight to be the standard-bearer of high octane blends is nowhere close to being settled.
