Monday, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad rolled out a new grant program to expand Iowa motorist’s access to ethanol and biodiesel. Iowa Renewable Fuel’s Association’s Managing Director Lucy Norton congratulated the Governor for his continued commitment to renewables through the ‘’Fueling Our Future’ program.

Norton says the two retailers are Oak Street Station in Inwood and Farmers Cooperative of Creston with a new site in Mount Ayr. She says both of those retailers will now offer several blends of ethanol and biodiesel to consumers.

Norton says an important education component of the grant program includes a survey that will be taken of consumer fuel preferences.
