Farm Bureau Welcomes Summer Ethanol Blend Waiver

US EPA announced that it’s issuing a waiver to allow the use of E15 nationwide again this summer. This action will provide communities with relief at the pump related to market supply issues created by the ongoing war in Ukraine and conflict in the Middle East by increasing fuel supply and offering a variety of gasoline fuel blends from which consumers can choose.

“Not only is ethanol-blended gasoline a valuable market to farmers in Ohio and across the Corn Belt, it also gives consumers a major cost-saving option at the pump,” said Ohio Farm Bureau Executive Vice President Adam Sharp. “Although we will continue to push for a permanent fix to year-round sales of E15, Ohio Farm Bureau members appreciate that their message of the importance of continuing to broaden market opportunities for E15 and strengthen our nation’s energy independence was heard by the US EPA. This decision is a win-win for farmers and consumers.”

The emergency fuel waiver to allow the sale of summer gasoline blends containing 15% ethanol will lengthen the period during which Americans can continue buying E15 from June 1 to Sept. 15.
