Growth Energy Partners with Rocky Point Citgo to Offer High Level Blends of Ethanol in New York

WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy has joined forces with Rocky Point Citgo to introduce another E85 fueling facility in the state of New York. Rocky Point Citgo is located at 557 RTE 25 A, in Rocky Point, NY and has opened an E85 pump with assistance from Growth Energy’s 2010 E85 and Blender Pump Program.

“It’s exciting to see more retailers in the Northeast installing high level ethanol fueling pumps,” said Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis. “We are pleased to assist Rocky Point Citgo in their efforts to provide motorists with greater fuel choice at the pump.”

When asked why he installed E85, Tom Campbell, the owner of Rocky Point Citgo said it was simple. “I felt with the high cost of regular gasoline and with more and more vehicles being made that are flex fuel, the significant price difference would sway customers to switch over to E85.”

Rocky Point Citgo started selling E85 in June of this year, but also offers E10, regular unleaded, midgrade and diesel.

Rocky Point is the 66th E85 fueling station in the state of New York and is a member of Growth Energy’s Market Development. To date, Growth Energy has issued grants to support a total of 90 ethanol fueling sites across the country, including 50 E85 pumps and 40 blender pumps.
