Biofuel industry thrilled with EPA for support, refiners not so much

Biofuel industry thrilled with EPA for support, refiners not so much

As FreightWaves recently covered, NATSO testified before Congress about the Renewable Fuel Standard’s (RFS) success. They argued that the RFS has largely succeeded because it allows fuel retailers to offer biofuel blends to consumers at a price that is less expensive than purely petroleum-based products. The RFS is designed to enable fuel marketers to lower consumer prices … Read More
