Higher energy prices hit all of us directly and quickly-- and it seems 
to be discussed in many places [besides the PLUG]

My dad emailed me a pdf of the ``Sunflower Week in Review'' for Jan 
25,2006.  Unfortunately-- the online html version on their website is 
stripped down and missing the blurb of interest.  What it said was - w/ 
oil prices being what they are-- crude oil increased to the point where 
the cost per barrel of crude is comparable to the cost of vegetabel 
oils.  Soybean Oil is pretty well tracking crude oil prices now on the 
cboe [Chicago Board of Exchange].

Even though the blurb of interest wasn't available -- I found another 
article [on the same page sunflowersnsa.com] that may be of interest:

Biodiesel May Power More Engines, Sunflower Too
January 2001


It's a lot of farming stuff-- trade publications in agriculture-- but 
also interesting to see that alternative fuels aren't as far off as many 
would think.
