T. Boone Pickens, the wealthy oil and gas magnate and creator of the Pickens Plan on energy, says he has no vested interest in ethanol, because he's not in the ethanol business, and he doesn't consider it to be competition. He says he understands ethanol issues, and he's supportive of any American source of energy over foreign oil.
