Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig presented Casey’s General Stores and Quick Oil Company with the 2019 Ethanol and Biodiesel Marketing Awards at the FUEL-Iowa annual meeting Tuesday in Des Moines. The awards were created by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship to recognize fuel marketers that have gone above and beyond in their efforts to promote and sell renewable fuels.
“Casey’s and Quick Oil Company have shown great leadership and commitment to marketing our homegrown renewable fuels. I am very proud to recognize the investment they have made to not only our renewable fuels industry, but the environment and Iowa economy as well,” Naig said.
Casey’s is rapidly adding E15 and E85 locations in Iowa and promoting its availability to customers. From 2017 to 2018, Casey’s went from two E15 and E85 stations in Iowa to 13.
Quick Oil Company has 11 employees and operates two tank wagons and three bulk fueling plants. They serve a primary customer base of farmers, contractors, and various other end-use customers.
FUELIowa is the new name for the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa (PMCI), the state trade association serving the needs of independent petroleum marketers and convenience store owners throughout the state.
