EPA Ethanol Blend Decision Expected Tuesday


The Environmental Protection Agency is set make a decision on Tuesday on a petition by Growth Energy to raise the blend limit in gasoline from 10 percent to 15 percent.

However, even if EPA agrees to raise the limit, there is no guarantee that gasoline with a higher blend of ethanol will be available at service stations any time soon.  According to the Des Moines Register, refiners don’t want to put more ethanol in gasoline unless Congress gives them protection from potential lawsuits from motorists or consumers who claim that ethanol hurts their engines.
