Farmers are supporting legislation that promotes higher blends of ethanol, reduces energy independence and lowers the cost of fuel.
Lance Lillibridge a farmer with the Iowa Corn Growers Association tells Brownfield the NexGen Fuels Act has benefits for consumers and producers. “We can put more biofuels into the tank. When we can do that, we can reduce the cost. Right now, I think it’s a $1 less for ethanol over regular gasoline.”
He tells Brownfield increasing fuel octane that reduces greenhouse gas emissions is good for the environment and consumers.
