Glacial Lakes Energy calls on South Dakota Congressional delegation to double up on E15

May 1, 2022 |

In South Dakota, opening the door to 30% ethanol blends would save consumers billions of dollars at the gas pump and reduce imported oil by as much as one billion barrels per year, according to officials at Glacial Lakes Energy who sent a letter to the South Dakota Congressional delegation.

In a letter to the South Dakota Congressional delegation, GLE CEO Jim Seurer said 30% ethanol blends are providing significant price savings and that a national E30 program would far surpass the equivalent amount of oil the Biden Administration is proposing to release from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Moreover, it would offset the lost imports of Russian oil, and establish a more sustainable energy strategy. And, at the height of the gasoline price run up, 94 octane E30 was selling at 40 cents less than even 10% blends, and more than one dollar less than premium.
