Higher Blends of Biofuels Offer American Drivers Savings at the Pump Throughout Holiday Weekend

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ahead of the July 4th holiday weekend, Growth Energy Senior Vice President of Market Development Mike Lorenz released the following statement highlighting the price savings at the pump that higher blends of biofuels like E15, a fifteen percent ethanol blended fuel, offer American drivers:

“Skyrocketing fuel prices shouldn’t take the joy out of Fourth of July travel plans,” said Lorenz, former head of petroleum supply and trading at Sheetz, a major E15 retailer currently offering the blend at a flat $3.99 per gallon through the holiday. “Across the country, American families have found savings ranging from 10 cents to nearly a dollar per gallon by filling up with E15 at more than 2,600 retail locations. America’s biofuel workers understand the value of energy security – the industry employs a greater share of U.S. veterans than any other energy sector – and we’re proud to do our part this Independence Day.”
