Earlier this month, Growth Energy Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Chris Bliley spoke with Eric Pfeiffer of Hoosier Ag Today at the annual National Association of Farm Broadcaster’s Washington Watch to discuss how allowing year-round sales of E15- a fuel blended with fifteen percent ethanol – will grow the fuel’s availability nationwide and drive economic growth. In the interview published by Hoosier Ag Today, Bliley said:

“What you have is you have a number of large retail chains who already have maybe 100 stores or 150 stores (with higher ethanol blends),” Bliley said. “They may add to their existing fleet of stores. You’ve got other retailers who are on the sideline who, I think, are waiting for this kind of certainty before they start selling. We’ve heard that directly. That really goes into our calculation that there’s about 1.3 billion gallons of new ethanol demand from E15 and E85 higher level blends, but they really need to see that kind of certainty of being able to sell E15 year-round.”
