Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor sent a letter to President Biden this week urging him to turn to higher biofuel blends to combat high gas prices. At a February 4th press conference, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the administration “will continue to look at options that can be done to lower gas prices for the American people.” Skor urged the president to “maximize biofuels to ease the pain at the pump” by working with his administration to restore the year-round sale of E15. Skor writes, “Biofuels like ethanol should be an essential part of our nation’s solution to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.” The Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from biofuel groups last month to reinstate year-round E-15. Available at more than 2,500 gas stations across 31 states, E15 is approved for more than 96 percent of light-duty vehicles on the road and sells for upwards of $0.10 less per gallon compared to conventional gasoline.
