Jack Gerard, CEO and President of the American Petroleum Institute (API), along with groups representing industries, farmers, restaurants and consumers, held a conference call to discuss the EPA’s 2014 RFS requirements.
Comments from Gerard
‘We’ve organised this joint press call with a variety of other groups that are concerned about the problems with the RFS, to demonstrate the broad impacts on our economy and consumers from the higher ethanol levels mandated by EPA.
‘For the first time, EPA has acknowledged that the blendwall is a dangerous reality that must be addressed to avoid serious impacts on America’s fuel supply and would be harmful for American consumers.
‘While the agency took a step in the right direction, more must be done to ensure America’s have the choice of ethanol free gasoline for boats and small engines, and to bring their mandates closer to reality on cellulosic biofuels, which do not exist in commercial quantities.
‘Ultimately, Congress must protect consumers by repealing this outdated and unworkable program once and for all.’
