The Biden administration is considering allowing the sale of gasoline with higher blends of ethanol this summer as a way to curb soaring prices, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. A bipartisan group of corn-state senators asked the administration to take the action last week to offer relief at the pump, and Psaki said Biden is “working overtime right now to evaluate and examine a range of domestic options that continue to be on the table.”
