Priming Sugar


I've got a batch of Pale Ale burbling away nicely in my closet (no geyser this
time). But, while making plans for bottling it this week, I've discovered that
I forgot to order priming sugar when I mail ordered my ingredients. Normally
this wouldn't be a problem, I'd run out to a friendly neighborhood homebrew
supply store and just buy some. Only two problems with that: 1) There isn't
one in my neighborhood; the nearest 40 miles away and 2) some pinhead decided
to plow into the side of my car so I'm without transportation.

So, I was wondering if corn sugar was available in any other type of store that
might be closer by (it's a lot easier to mooch rides when you don't have to go
far), or if I could use cane sugar to prime. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm
finding it hard to RDWHHB without my car.
