Baltic South Dakota Fuel Retailer To Testify Before EPA On RFS Volumes

Baltic, South Dakota fuel retailer Bruce Vollan is scheduled to testify before EPA in Virginia Thursday on their RFS volume requirement proposal.  He says the volume requirements shouldn’t have been lowered, that consumers want renewable fuels and are choosing them at the pump.

Vollan says keeping the RFS intact is the best way to ensure market access for E 15 and E 85. He says there is no blend wall as large oil companies are claiming.

He says Big Oil companies are so adamant against losing volume to ethanol that they will spend whatever it takes to stand in the way of it.
