HIGH-ETHANOL GAS TO BE SOLD
WASHINGTON » President Donald Trump will allow year-round sales of renewable fuel
with blends of 15 percent ethanol as part of an emerging deal to make changes to the
federal ethanol mandate.
Republican senators and the White House announced the deal Tuesday after
a closed-door meeting, the latest in a series of White House sessions on ethanol.
The Environmental Protection Agency currently bans the 15-percent blend,
called E15, during the summer because of concerns that it contributes to smog on hot days.
Gasoline typically contains 10 percent ethanol.
