USDA Secretary Supports Summer Sales of E15 Fuel

Expects the environmental waiver to support the supply chain.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has waived summer air pollution rules for the second year in a row. This will allow the sale of unleaded gasoline blended with 15% ethanol (E15) to be sold during the busy summer travel months. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack stated his support for this decision, saying that the use of American-made biofuel will strengthen America’s “energy independence” and will keep “supply chains running.”

“By allowing the summer sale of E15 at gas pumps nationwide, President Biden is supporting the creation of good-paying jobs and economic growth, particularly in rural and farm communities,” stated Secretary Vilsack. “USDA is continuing to make critical investments in infrastructure to expand biofuels’ availability for drivers at thousands more retailers through competitive grants we expect to announce soon.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Vilsack as he supports the EPA’s decision to allow the higher blend of ethanol in gasoline.
  • For Administrator Regan to seek God’s direction as he leads the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • For USDA officials as they promote programs to support biofuel producers.
