OMAHA, Neb. – A promotion for ethanol fuel will allow drivers to pay just 85 cents a gallon for E-85 fuel Friday at two Omaha stations.

The deal runs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Kum & Go at 72nd and Blondo Streets and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kum & Go at 90th and Boyd Streets.

Customers will be limited to 30 gallons and gas containers will not be allowed.

The promotion was organized by the Nebraska Corn Board, Iowa Corn Promotion Board and Nebraska Ethanol Board.

Organizers say about one in 10 vehicles in Nebraska and Iowa are flex-fuel vehicles able to use ethanol gas, and many drivers don’t even know it.

The price averages for fuel in Nebraska, according to AAA: Regular, $3.32; Mid, $3.34; Premium, $3.63; and Diesel, $3.67.
