WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Growth Energy and Casey’s General Stores announced that Casey’s will expand its E15 offering to more than 60 new sites this summer across their footprint following the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) approval of E15 year-round. E15, known the consumers as Unleaded 88, is a fuel with 15 percent ethanol and is approved for all cars 2001 and newer.

It took about four years for retailers to sell enough E15 to fuel ONE billion miles (from about 2013 to 2017). However, since then, use has increased so […]
