EPA proposed its volume of biofuels that must be blended into the U.S. fuel supply for 2017. The rule proposes that refineries blend 18.8 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol and other biofuels into the gasoline supply for the coming year. While that amounts to nearly 700 million gallons more than the requirement for 2015, it is less than the 24 billion gallons envisioned by a 2007 law. ABA continues to leverage this ongoing issue through a variety of Coalitions in an effort to restore the balance between food and fuel crops.
