February has been declared Ethanol Awareness Month in Hopkinsville and all of Christian County, KY. The mayor of Hopkinsville and the judge-executive of the county made that proclamation this week. According to a news release, as part of Ethanol Awareness Month, MaxFuel Express of Max Arnold & Sons, LLC, in partnership with the Commonwealth Agri-Energy, LLC, will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of ethanol-enriched gasoline to the Jennie Stuart Medical Center. Funds donated will be used to send five children to the American Lung Association of Kentucky asthma camp. “We know that offering consumers the option to use ethanol is the right thing to do because it helps reduce air pollution which helps everyone breathe easier,” says Phillip Russo, vice president of Max Arnold & Sons, LLC, based in Hopkinsville, Ky. Forty-four MaxFuel Express stores in the Christian county area sell one or more grades of gasoline with a 10 percent ethanol-enriched fuel.
