“Today was a tremendous day for Ohio fuel consumers and the state’s corn farmers alike,” said Ben Klick, president of the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. “Governor DeWine’s support of higher blends of ethanol in our fuel supply highlights the importance of choice at the pump. This will reduce the cost while lowering harmful greenhouse gas emissions.”
Governor Mike DeWine sent a letter to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan today asking that the EPA permanently remove restrictions around the sale of 15 percent ethanol (E-15, also called Unleaded 88) fuel.
“Ohio corn farmers applaud Governor DeWine for asking the U.S. EPA to permanently remove outdated restrictions around the sale of E15 fuel,” said Tadd Nicholson, executive director of the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. “With fuel prices at an all-time high, consumers are searching for a more cost effective, cleaner-burning, and higher-octane fuel.”
