WASHINGTON, D.C. – Over the weekend, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed AB 411 into law, legislation that would require the Nevada Board of Agriculture to approve a fifteen percent ethanol blended fuel (E15) as part of any fuel regulation adopted by July 1, 2022. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement applauding Nevada for moving to approve E15 as part of its state fuel regulations:

“By signing AB411 into law, Governor Sisolak is providing Nevadans with the opportunity save money at the pump and fill up with the plant-based biofuels like E15, a fuel blended with fifteen percent renewable ethanol,” said Skor. “Nevadans will soon have the choice to fuel up with plant-based biofuels through E15, a simple choice that not only saves them money at the pump but will also benefit the earth. We’re looking forward to working with retailers across the state to add E15 to their fuel offerings so Nevadans have greater access a liquid fuel that reduces their carbon emissions.”

Once the regulation is finalized, Nevada would be the 47th state to approve E15 for consumers. Currently, E15 – marketed to consumers as Unleaded 88 – is offered at over 2,440 retail sites in 30 states and 230 terminals. Consumers have driven over 21 billion miles on E15 to date.

We’ll say it again, RIN prices do not impact gas prices. Gas prices are directly tied to the price of oil. The easiest way to meet the goals of the RFS AND keep prices at the pump low is to blend more biofuels. https://t.co/N0RPwpNi01

"If we moved to a 15% ethanol blend nationally, greenhouse gas emission would be reduced by 17 million tons each year, the equivalent of taking nearly 4 million cars off the road each year."
