Lamar, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado is getting a new ethanol plant as businesses seek to take advantage of increased demand with gasoline prices setting records.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports that ground was broken near Lamar for the Liquidmaize Ethanol Production Plant.

The facility will cost $24 million.

It will be built on eight acres of land just north of Lamar on Colorado 196.

Governor Bill Ritter, who attended, says the addition of another ethanol plant is a sign of how the nation will be making changes in where it gets it energy.
