Farm Bureau Calls for More Tanks

AFBF The American Farm Bureau Federation is asking Congress to provide incentives for gas station owners to install storage tanks so that alternative fuels will be more available to the public. House and Senate bills H.R. 5346 and S. 2614 would provide those incentives for not only ethanol and biodiesel, but also compressed natural gas or hydrogen.

According to a release, AFBF President Bob Stallman sent a letter to members of Congress last week urging them to pass the bills, saying “The result of this legislation would be increased consumer access to alternative fuels and more use of such fuels as E-85 and biodiesel, which are renewable fuels produced from the crops grown by America’s farmers.”
