Gas pains, Midwest farmers' gains?
from The Washington Times
Rising gas prices could be just what Midwest farmers need to compete with larger food producers out west.

Instead of buying from California the nation's largest agricultural producer they are turning to states closer to home, such as Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin.
