Over the last eight decades, U.S. prices per one metric ton of corn showed high volatilities but were rapidly increasing in the last years. A new peak price was reached in summer 2012, attributable especially to the tremendous drought in most of the major agricultural U.S. states. As of 2022, corn prices are projected to almost reach the 2012 values. Corn is increasingly utilized in the production of industrial ethanol. In 2022/2023, over a quarter of all corn was used for this purpose in the United States.
