WASHINGTON, DC – Casey’s General Store today unveiled a partnership with Prime the Pump, a Growth Energy partner and nonprofit organization dedicated to helping to give more Americans the choice of E15 at the pump. Casey’s will expand its offering of E15 – a fuel with 15 percent ethanol –  to potentially more than 500 of its locations over the next few years. E15 is approved for 9 out of 10 cars on the road today and American drivers have surpassed 5 billion miles on it.

“Since first rolling out E15, we’ve seen the benefit the biofuel blend offers in terms of value for our customers and a competitive advantage for our business,” said Casey’s Director of Fuels Nathaniel Doddridge. “We’re excited to partner with Prime the Pump and Growth Energy to build on the success and accelerate our offering of E15 to even more of our customers.”

“We are thrilled Prime the Pump is entering into partnership with Casey’s and taking it to record-breaking heights to give more American drivers a cleaner burning, engine-smart option at the pump,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Casey’s has seen the value E15 brings to their business and to their customers, and will soon be the nation’s largest E15 retailer. This announcement underscores the critical need for lawmakers to approve year-round use of E15.”

In March of 2017, Casey’s announced they would be offering E15 fuel at select stores in the Midwest. Today, Casey’s is among the nation’s leading independent retailers including Kwik Trip, Sheetz, Kum & Go, Minnoco, RaceTrac, Thorntons, Protec Fuels, QuikTrip, Family Express, Holiday, Murphy USA, Holiday, Rutter’s, and Cenex offering E15 at more than 1,600 stations across 30 states.

.@EmilySkor continued, “There is an urgent need to address the lack of transparency over small refinery exemptions, and reallocate the 2.6 billion lost gallons of #biofuels demand as a result of these continued handouts to oil refineries.” (3/3)
