Kelly Calls For Year Round Sale Of E-15


 Governor Laura Kelly requests EPA approval of the sale of E15 products throughout the summer months.

 Kelly sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan requesting the agency allow the sale of E15 products through the use of an emergency waiver. This move, which the EPA granted last summer, would help prevent potential fuel shortages and save Kansas money at the gas pump.

 Allowing the sale of this product during the summer driving season would also support the Kansas ag industry, especially corn growers who contribute to ethanol production.

 During the summer of 2022, the EPA emergency waiver helped prevent potential shortages and saved Americans at least $57 million in fuel costs. U.S. inventories of crude oil and petroleum products recently hit a 19-year low, and nationwide gasoline stocks are 3% lower than a year ago. Those statistics, coupled with continued international tension and refining capacity being offline for maintenance, are predicted to have the same implications as last summer, providing support for another emergency waiver.
