Midwest convenience store chain Kum & Go was selling gasoline with 15 percent ethanol for $1.15 Friday, an introductory offer as blends higher than the common E10 start to become more widespread.

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts appeared at the store at 144th and Q Streets Friday, touting ethanol made at Nebraska plants with Nebraska corn.

The E15 blend is now available for use in passenger vehicles model year 2001 and newer exclusively at nine Omaha-area Kum & Go stations, the Governor’s Office said. Nebraska is the second-largest ethanol producer, behind Iowa.
