E-15 sales soar but obstacles remain

min read

Renewable Fuels Association chief economist Scott Richman says summer E15 sales were up 15% compared to 2022 sales in June, July and August. The number is based on Minnesota Department of Commerce data the RFA recently examined.

Minnesota is the only state that provides monthly dates on E15 volumes and prices.

Richman credits the rise in sales to EPA waivers issued that allowed E15 sales through the summer months. He also believes the biofuel’s cost-competitiveness further drove demand. Positive consumer response to the fuel may have also spurred retail interest in offering E15.

While the news is good for E15 suppliers, Richman says the situation will not be optimal until Congress enacts legislation allowing permanent year-round E15 sales.

“The restriction on E15 is an anachronism from a time when the usage of renewable fuels was not commonplace, and action is needed to ensure uninterrupted sales of this less-expensive, cleaner, lower-carbon fuel,” Richman says.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
