Recent world events and their impact on gas prices have illuminated the need for the United States to use all available energy sources at its disposal. Ethanol is a renewable solution to supply-driven gasoline price hikes and there are things that both the Biden Administration and Congress can do to move our country forward, by providing more consumer choice of ethanol, to be more energy secure.

For nearly a decade, essentially all of the gasoline in the marketplace has been blended with 10% ethanol (E-10). All private passenger vehicles produced since model year 2001 are approved for using E-15. This comprises nearly 97% of cars on the road today.
