Abstract: The assessment of biofuels from an economic point of view reveals the interactions between biofuel production volume and prices of the plants. These interactions are subjects of scientific discussions, as the increased demand of crops is likely to increase their price according. From the social aspect, the increase of crops' price may be assessed in two ways - on the one hand, it would increase growers' income and, consequently, the social well-being, biofuels production may reduce the availability of food. From the environmental point of view, biofuels production should reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere, however, the process of biofuel production consumes large quantities of water, which can be very valuable in supporting the biodiversity of a certain region, besides, timber harvesting may increase and, consequently, the absorption of CO2 will decrease. The purpose of the article is to prepare the research methodology assessing the impact of biofuels production development in terms of resource prices in the EU countries. The performed multi-dimensional regression analysis allows stating that the development of biofuel production during the research period, from 2003 to 2013, did not have significant impact on the prices of food and feed plants, although a strong or very strong relation exists between the price of food and feed plants and production volume. Regression analysis revealed that when more factors are involved instead of just biofuel production volume, the changes in ethanol or biodiesel production volume have less impact on the price of feedstock plants than, for instance, oil price.[...]
