Vicksburg is closing its Vicksburg ethanol plant due to high corn prices. They will reassess operations in 2013.

The plant is one of only five south of the Ohio River. This is south of the usual corn belt suggesting the plant is dependent on corn shipped south by barge on the Mississippi River. Higher shipping costs caused by low water may also be a factor.
