Sales of E85 fuel in Iowa are 9X year to date…versus 2005. That’s big. The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association is helping our state solve a key component of the E85 distribution dilemma…the availability of E85 pumps, by providing a cost share grant through the Grow Iowa Values Fund. The bottom line is that now over 100 businesses will get assistance in reducing the cost of adding E85 pumps…versus the 20 or 30 before.
This is a reasonable use of our tax dollars considering our nation is increasingly behind energy independence.
