Fourth-largest fuel market becomes 31st state to allow sale of ethanol blend

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York has become the latest state to legalize the sale of E15.

On Nov. 20, the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets finalized a rule that enables sales of the 15% ethanol/85% gasoline fuel blend. The state had made a previous, failed attempt to legalize E15 in 2016.

Emily Skor, CEO of ethanol industry group Growth Energy, Washington, D.C., hailed the development, which opens the fourth-largest fuel market in the United States to E15.
