Today transfer ethanol at Argo was pegged at $1.27 per gallon while Chicago ethanol traded under Rule 11 for this week shipment changed hands at $1.255 per gallon. New York Harbor January ethanol barges were talked at $1.3825 per gallon, up 2.25 cents. February barges in the Harbor were pegged at $1.4025 per gallon, up 2.25 cents.
