In the initial release, the Dashboard will summarize:

Includes both tabular data, and charts.

“There is a tremendous amount of price data available from a wide array of sources,” said Digest editor Jim Lane.  “Some is more important to the biofuels reader than others. With this weekly dashboard, we aim to provide the most essential data, in one convenient 5-minute summary. As the sector grows and changes — we’ll track and report on new prices as they become essentials.”
