White House Weighs Further Help to Ethanol

Trump heard from farmers in Iowa that initiative to boost sales of the corn-based fuel additive didn’t go far enough

The Trump administration is looking to make further changes to ethanol rules after the president heard from farmers during a recent trip to Iowa that an initiative to boost sales of the corn-based fuel additive didn’t go far enough, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Wall Street Journal reports possible remedies could include limiting waivers that help small oil refiners get around mandates that they blend plant-based fuels into gasoline and diesel, these sources said. They cautioned no decisions have been made.
