In this photo taken July 2009 tanker trucks are loaded up with ethanol at the Archer Daniels Midland Company plant in Decatur, Ill. While a Senate vote to end a tax credit that's helped build the ethanol industry in the United States signals that the subsidy's days may be numbered, corn farmers and ethanol makers hope they can convince Congress to compromise and agree to preserve but reduce subsidies.
