519k Gallons Of E15 Sold In Feb

  • Friday, 08 April 2016 12:55

E15 sales in Minnesota totaled 519,598 gallons in February, the second highest volume ever recorded in the state. 

In 2015, there were 7 issued air pollution warnings specifically attributed to particulate matter within the Twin Cities. 40% or 145 days had a moderate level category of particulate matter emissions, higher than any other place in Minnesota and over double the amount compared to next largest state area. For 2016, there has already been one issued air pollution warning on January 14 for particulate matter.

Today’s Star Tribune reported of a proposal in the Minnesota legislature that calls for a financial incentive to boost electric or plug-in hybrid sales in the state to reduce emissions.

A new report by Reuters indicates that the oil industry could lose $10 billion annually if E15 replaces E10 and becomes the new regular in gas stations across the country.
