WASHINGTON, DC— American drivers taking to the road for family gatherings this Thanksgiving could save $4 million if they fill up with E15, a fuel that contains 15 percent ethanol.

Following AAA’s prediction of record-breaking travel for Americans this holiday weekend, Growth Energy is encouraging drivers to take advantage of the value E15 brings and go to GetEthanol.com to locate an E15 station while on the road this week.

“E15 is a great fuel option any time, but when families are traveling further to see loved ones for Thanksgiving, it gives them an opportunity to keep a little extra money in their pockets since E15 can cost up to 10 cents less,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “If all those drivers filled up with E15 this year, it could mean nearly $4 million in savings. That’s reason to celebrate.”

E15 is available at nearly 1,200 locations across 29 states, and Americans recently surpassed 2 billion miles driven on the fuel. Growth Energy is proud to partner with leading retailers including Casey’s, Cenex, Family Express, Kum & Go, Kwik Trip, MAPCO, Minnoco, Murphy USA, Protec Fuel, QuikTrip, RaceTrac, Sheetz, and Thorntons to offer E15 to their customers.

“E15 burns cleaner, so it’s a good choice for engines and the environment — it is a better value all around, and I encourage those traveling this year to find their nearest E15 station at GetEthanol.com,” added Skor.

E15 is approved for 2001 and newer vehicles, which make up 90 percent of the vehicles on the road today.

As @RepCheri Bustos says here, the biofuels industry has a cascading effect on agriculture — it promotes strong supply chains and multiplies rural economic output. Abuse of the Renewable Fuel Standard through refinery exemptions only serves to harm the ag economy. https://t.co/pvW7P4yZ4F
