EPA issues temporary emergency fuel waiver for E15 sales

May 1, 2022 |

In Washington, D.C., the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing an emergency fuel waiver to allow E15 gasoline to be sold during the summer driving season. This action will increase fuel supply and provide consumers more choices at the pump.

The waiver is a critical step to implement President Biden’s announcement that he is taking action to protect Americans from supply crises by reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, building real U.S. energy independence, supporting American agriculture and manufacturing, and accelerating the transition to clean energy.

This action is being taken to counteract Russia’s unjustified, unprovoked, and unconscionable war against Ukraine and the profound impact on global and domestic energy markets. EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have been actively monitoring market supply disruptions caused by Russia’s war in Ukraine.
