As the holiday season officially begins, CEO @EmilySkor spoke with TV and radio stations from across the country about how Americans can save money and help the environment by selecting higher biofuel blends like UNL88 at the pump. Take a look: fb.watch/9Cfw4CXanZ/

I’m throughly disappointed that @EPA failed to meet their deadline for issuing biofuel blending requirements that would lower emissions & gas prices. Keeping biofuels in the U.S. clean energy agenda means ensuring fossil fuel companies can’t keep skirting their #RFS obligations.

Earlier this month, we submitted a Notice of Intent to sue @EPA regarding its failure to timely fulfill the agency’s statutory obligation under the RFS to issue the 2022 RVO. That was 28 days before today's deadline of November 30. growthenergy.org/2021/11/02/gro…

🛎 @EPA, today marks the statutory deadline under the RFS to issue the 2022 RVO. Failing to issue RVOs on time is a missed opportunity to address our climate challenge, provide consumers with continued lower-carbon choices at the pump, and contribute to the rural recovery. https://t.co/dheapJIHKz
