Keeping up the E15 talk

Nearly 30 bipartisan lawmakers in the House reiterated calls for the president to reinstate the year-round availability of E15 fuel, as well as reverse course on the proposed retroactive reduction to 2020 and 2021 Renewable Volume Obligations, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “Upholding the RFS and permanently reinstating the year-round availability of E-15 would lower fuel prices for hardworking Americans,” they wrote.

The ethanol industry also kept up the pressure Thursday , expressing disappointment the White House did not include any actions on E15 in its suite of announcements. “It is baffling to us that President Biden continues to overlook ethanol, which is the most readily available, lowest-cost, and lowest-carbon option for extending our nation’s fuel supply,” said Renewable Fuels President and CEO Geoff Cooper.
