E85 Sales Continue to Grow in Iowa

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association announced in early January that E85 sales in Iowa continued remarkable growth during 2007. That's based on data for the third quarter of 2007—the latest data available from the Iowa Department of Revenue. Sales of E85 by Iowa retailers reached 941,547 gallons during the third quarter of 2007, which is a 48% increase over the same time period in 2006.

The story also says that the number of E85 pumps in Iowa has gone from 30 two years ago to 79 presently.

Actually there are now 88 stations in Iowa offering E85. For awhile Iowa appeared to be dragging their feet. Now it is full speed ahead. They will no doubt have 100 stations by summer.

Nationwide the list is now up to 1469. Since the UL problem is out of the way, I look for rapid expansion this year. Perhaps as many as 2500 stations by the end of the year.
