Biden’s Betrayal: Ethanol Agenda Harms American Drivers!

The Biden administration has acquiesced to the requests of state leaders in the Midwest to permit the year-round sale of gasoline containing greater proportions of ethanol by 2025. Assigned to be finalized by the end of March, this decision deals a significant setback to endeavors aimed at safeguarding American consumers against the detrimental consequences associated with ethanol-infused fuel.

Reuters was the first to report on the action, which is a slap in the face to those who have opposed the increased use of ethanol in petroleum. The administration was petitioned by the governors of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin to permit year-round sales of E15 gasoline, which is composed of an astounding 15% ethanol. Their blatant disregard for the welfare of American motorists is unequivocally demonstrated by the administration's consideration of this preposterous request.

Although these Midwestern states had anticipated a 2025 start date that was later than the actual date, the EPA may grant them temporary authorization for E15 sales in the near future. This means that this hazardous fuel blend may be introduced to the public considerably sooner than anticipated.

The advocacy for year-round E15 gasoline sales represents a significant triumph for the influential ethanol lobby, which has persistently sought to ease regulations imposed on ethanol gas in accordance with the Renewable Fuel Standard. The detrimental effects of ethanol on engines and the environment are being disregarded in support of special interests.

The repercussions of this decision will inevitably be experienced by diligent Americans, who may potentially incur additional expenses for gasoline and vehicle repairs. Given that this decision was made mere months prior to the presidential election in November, there are significant apprehensions regarding the political motivations that may have prompted this action. It is extremely suspicious that this decision is being rendered in pivotal Midwest states where the outcome of the election could be determined.

Evidently, the Biden administration is more preoccupied with gaining political points and appeasing major ethanol producers than with contemplating the adverse effects this will have on American consumers. The administration's lack of response to these concerns exacerbates the situation and demonstrates a flagrant disregard for the American people's welfare.
