"There is a RINs trading desk at any major brokerage now," said Paul Niznik, bio-fuels manager for Hart Energy, based in Houston.

I found two experts who've examined this question in great detail: Paul Niznik, an analyst at Stratas Advisors, an energy consulting business in Houston, and Scott Irwin, an economist who teaches at the University of Illinois.
Niznik, from Stratas Advisors, says that when corn prices hit a peak in 2012, because of a drought in the Midwest, there were bitter complaints about the ethanol mandate among farmers and people in the food industry who wanted that corn to be used for animal feed. "They were assuming that if we used less ethanol, the price of corn would go down," he says. "The truth is," Niznik continues, "the [petroleum] refining folks knew in their hearts that if the [ethanol mandate]went away for a while, ethanol use wouldn't drop much. They were looking around at the octane replacements, and knew that those things were really expensive. Niznik says removing ethanol also would have forced gasoline companies to disrupt their refinery operations. According to Niznik, there may be some justification for that fear. "Refiners are looking strategically up the road," he says. "They're looking at forecasts of shrinking gasoline demand. They could say to themselves, 'Why should I be giving 10 percent away? I want to sell product that's mine!'" Switching to petroleum-based octane boosters such as benzene would not be easy, though. n the short term, Niznik says, it would be self-defeating. Oil companies are competing against each other to make cheap gas, and "the guy with ethanol is probably going to win." But those other sources of octane are getting cheaper, Niznik says, and in the long run, they might be just as cheap as ethanol. In 10 years, he says, the business case for using ethanol could disappear. "It would be very hard to unravel things like that," Niznik says.
