New API poll claims voters concerned about year-round E15

October 30, 2018 |

In Washington, the American Petroleum Institute released the results of a new national poll conducted by Harris Poll, showing that the vast majority of voters are concerned about the Trump administration’s proposal to allow the year-round sale of higher ethanol blended E15 gasoline.

Key poll results:

79 percent of voters are concerned about expanded E15 sales and vehicle incompatibility.

83 percent of voters are concerned that consumers could shoulder higher pump prices if service stations are forced to invest in new infrastructure to accommodate certain types of fuels.

68 percent of voters are concerned about consumers mistakenly using E15 and causing damage to their engines.

81 percent of voters are concerned that government requirements could exceed the 10 percent level of ethanol in the nation’s fuel supply which studies have shown could increase gasoline prices by up to 26 cents per gallon.

The study was conducted on October 12-16, 2018, by telephone by Harris Poll on behalf of the American Petroleum Institute among 1001 registered voters across the U.S., with a sampling error of +/- 3.1 percent. A full methodology is available upon request.
