WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy, the nation’s top ethanol advocate, issued the following statement from CEO Emily Skor after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) announced it’s short-term relief strategy for farmers:

“Once again, this administration has missed an opportunity to provide long-term relief to farmers by increasing domestic demand through RVP relief. Allowing year-round sales of higher blend fuels such as E15 is one way to address sales lost because of new tariffs and provide increased certainty for farmers and producers. We will continue encouraging the President and his administration to uphold his promise of supporting farmers and rural Americans by following through on allowing the year-round sale of higher blend fuels.”

Growth Energy is running a television ad asking President Trump to uphold his promise to farmers by allowing the sale of E15 year-round. Watch here.

In 2020, the U.S. produced the least CO2 emissions from energy in nearly 40 years -- and petroleum accounted for 97% of transportation sector emissions. Use of low-carbon biofuels like bioethanol today could reduce these emissions by 46%. eia.gov/todayinenergy/…
