WASHINGTON, DC – Growth Energy announced a new ad campaign today calling on President Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure uninterrupted access to cleaner, more affordable E15 fuel during the fast-approaching summer driving season. The seven-figure campaign will include television and digital advertising in Washington, DC and in major biofuel-producing states.
“The clock is ticking, and we need the administration to act swiftly to ensure fuel savings from E15 do not disappear from gas stations this summer,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Immediate action on a summer waiver would signal relief at the pump for consumers and provide retailers with the certainty they need to fully commit to offering E15 over the summer ahead. That’s why we’re rallying grassroots supporters, retail partners, and elected leaders across the heartland to protect access to fuel savings with E15.”
“Last year, thanks to action by the Biden administration, E15 saved drivers nearly a dollar per gallon in some areas, with savings averaging to $0.16 per gallon across the country,” added Skor. “Russia’s war in Ukraine, low crude oil inventories, and other supply issues continue to drive volatility in our fuel markets, and we need President Biden to act again.

On May 31, 21 members of the House, led by Rep. Darin LaHood, R-Ill., sent a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai urging her to protect U.S. farmers and biofuel producers and prioritize U.S. #ethanol export competitiveness in Brazil.https://t.co/Ugx88bA1KT https://t.co/bmf7EjdNxA
Protecting #IA04 farmers and #ethanol producers will always be a top priority for me in Congress. I appreciate working with my @WaysandMeansGOP colleague @RepLaHood to ensure American ethanol exports receive fair treatment and robust market access in Brazil. https://t.co/pX246NiqLn
