The unofficial start of summer is next week and the Renewable Fuels Association is giving people a chance to win $50 in free fuel per day all summer long just for reporting prices for higher ethanol blends around the country. Beginning on Memorial Day, RFA is launching the “Ethanol Days of Summer” contest, allowing anyone to report the price posted for E85 and other ethanol blends just by being registered on E85prices.com and submitting prices any day, every day for multiple stations each day. Registered users can also download the E85 Prices mobile app so they can submit prices right on their phone. Daily winners will be drawn through Labor Day, and winners will be announced every two weeks.
“This contest will not only drive traffic to these stations, but it will help us maintain the best ethanol station locator website, along with pricing information for those stations,” said RFA Vice President of Industry Relations Robert White.
In this edition of The Ethanol Report podcast, White explains more about the contest and E85prices.com, which was acquired by RFA in 2015, is crowdsourced and offers updated prices for E85 and other ethanol blends, including E15, from thousands of stations across the country.
