USDA Pumps $100M into 5,000 New Ethanol Pumps

The Tulsa World reports that “The U.S. Department of Agriculture says it is spending $100 million to help install nearly 5,000 additional ethanol fuel pumps in 21 states.”  

“The agency said Wednesday that matching grants bring the total public-private investment to $210 million to increase the availability of the corn-based fuel.”  

“The USDA says a typical gas pump delivers 10 percent ethanol, but the grants will help install pumps that offer higher blends of ethanol for more recently made vehicles.”
