Report Charges Big Oil With Blocking Renewable Fuels

Spencer, IA: (Jul 09, 2014) – More than a year after the Renewable Fuels Association asked the federal government to investigate the oil industry’s alleged blocking of renewable fuels from the market, the RFA released a report Tuesday that claims the oil industry is making a concerted effort to not allow higher blends at the pump.

RFA Senior Vice President Geoff Cooper the “Big Five” are discouraging sales of E-15 and E-85, especially at stations carrying their brand name.

Cooper says that of the 48-thousand Big Five branded stations, fewer than 300 offer E-85 or E-15 blends.

Big Oil claims a shortage of fueling infrastructure for not offering higher blends.
