Ag groups around the country have had mixed reactions to President Biden’s State of the Union address Tuesday. The Renewable Fuels Association says ethanol should be the go-to solution for the dependence the U.S. has on Russia for oil and gas. The organization says the U.S. receives about 600-thousand barrels per day of crude oil and other petroleum-based products, meaning Russia receives $60 million per day from the U.S.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Wheat Growers says concerns over the Russia/Ukraine conflict brings volatility to the markets. The organization says they’re thankful both Republicans and Democrats stand in unity on the issue.
