Corn Growers Respond to EPA Waiver Denial

The National Corn Growers Association was quick to thank the EPA for its recent decision to deny Texas' request for a waiver from the Renewable Fuel Standard.

According to association president Ron Litterer:
“The higher energy costs, the higher everything else costs,” Litterer said. “Corn ethanol helps provide energy independence and keep energy prices down. It’s part of the solution to the real problem.”
Rick Tolman, CEO of the organization, was interviewed on FoxBusiness yesterday about the EPA's decision and its impact on consumers, buinesses and corn growers.

We had to laugh a bit when the interviewer seemed to know very little about ethanol. The only time she had seen a station was when she was in FRANCE! She really should get out of the Big Apple and visit the rest of America.

Ethanol is blended into gasoline across the country as E10 (an oxygenate replacing the poisonous MTBE) and now at over 1,600 fueling stations as E85. E10 is 10% blend of ethanol with 90% ethanol suitable for all vehicles and E85 is a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline available for newer Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFVs).

We also have a complete list of E85 Fueling Sites here at FoodandFuel which offer E85 locations, including for both web and mobile devices.
