Soda and Beer May Go Flat

There may be more bad news for carbonated drink lovers.  Carbon dioxide gas is captured in large volumes during the production of ethanol and then sold to food and beverage industry.  CO2 is used in the carbonation process for beverages such as soda and beer.  Now that ethanol production is in decline based on less driving and reduced need for gasoline, less carbon dioxide is captured causing a reduced supply.  According to Reuters, prices for carbon dioxide have already increased by 25% based on supply and demand factors.
