WASHINGTON, DC — Following the announcement that the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Grocery Manufacturers Association’s (GMA) plan to continue their baseless attempt to deny free market access of E15, Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy released the following statement:
“There is nothing unexpected in this announcement; in fact it is not even news. We know that the oil companies are going to do everything within their power to restrict access of a price competitive product. They will stop at nothing to keep consumers from having a choice at the pump of a better performing, homegrown and less expensive, renewable fuel.
“The sun sets every day and Christmas comes once year – and Big Oil is just as predictable in their endless efforts to protect their bottom line and its monopoly on the liquid fuels market.”
