E-15 Fuel

A Tarkio Missouri corn grower is pushing lawmakers to consider a rule change for the use of ethanol in gasoline.

Kevin Hurst was recently elected chairman of the Missouri Corn Merchandising Council. He was in Jefferson City Monday persuading lawmakers in an attempt to approve E-15 for use in the state of Missouri. He says E-15 would benefit motorists.

Hurst says the per gallon price for the E-15 fuel grade would be up to 10 cents cheaper than regular gasoline.
