Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump had a rally for his supporters in Iowa and discussed an important issue to the voters there, ethanol.

“At a rally this evening, President Trump is expected to announce a proposed regulatory change that would lift a ban on selling an ethanol-gasoline blend during the summer months,” reported National Public Radio.

ANNOUNCEMENT AT RALLY

FOX News reported:

“President Trump will revise fuel guidelines to allow for the year-round sale of gasoline with higher concentrations of ethanol, Republican senators announced on Tuesday.

The action addresses a rule the Environmental Protection Agency had in place preventing the sale of so-called E15 fuel, which contains 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, between June 1 and Sept. 15. The purpose was to prevent air pollution and curb dependence on foreign petroleum, but the ban has stopped some retailers from selling E15 at all because of the need to change out pumps.

Gasoline generally contains about 10 percent ethanol. Allowing for the year-round sale of E15 will give farmers more avenues to sell corn, which could bolster revenue especially when prices are low.

Lifting the ban has been opposed by oil refiners.”
