WASHINGTON, D.C—Growth Energy today urged drivers to take advantage of big holiday savings on higher-ethanol fuel blends, including a special discounted price on E15 of $1.99 per gallon being offered by Kum & Go.
“Ethanol blends have been America’s best shield against skyrocketing fuel prices all year long, and thanks to our retail partners at Kum & Go, those savings could make an even bigger difference this holiday season,” said Jake Comer, Growth Energy’s vice president of Market Development. “Now is a great time to take advantage of deep discounts on E15, which has already fueled more than 30 billion miles on the road for American drivers. We applaud Kum & Go’s leadership in offering consumers access to higher biofuel blends like E15, and for giving back to their guests with this incredible promotion.”
Kum & Go’s holiday special offers drivers E15 for $1.99 per gallon, a discount of more than a dollar per gallon compared to standard gasoline. The promotion is slated to run from December 23 to December 26.
“Also known as Unleaded 88, E15 is an ideal lower-cost, lower-carbon option, approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for all light-duty cars and trucks model year 2001 or newer. That’s more than 96 percent of light duty vehicles, which account for 98 percent of all vehicle miles traveled,” added Comer. “We’re grateful to our friends at Kum & Go for giving holiday drivers another reason to celebrate the season, and we urge leaders in Congress to do the same by acting on legislation to ensure E15 will remain available to drivers all year long.”
Drivers can find E15 retail locations—including the nearest Kum & Go store—via the Get Biofuel fuel finder to take advantage of the holiday promotion.
