As people take summer drives, Tim agrees with South Dakota farmers than we need more ethanol in gas tanks.
That’s why Tim spoke with dozens of people and did several media interviews at a pro-E15 rally in Sioux Falls Wednesday morning. E15 is fuel with 15 percent ethanol in it instead of the usual 10 percent.
Tim believes adding ethanol to our fuel makes good sense, both to boost the slumping price of corn and to use American product, not oil from South America or the Middle East.
During the Tractor Rally at Falls Park Farmers Market, Tim heard from farmers and members of the ethanol industry on how they need support for their product — and a clear message to Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt to grant a waiver and allow the sale of E15 year-round.
