The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association (WCGA) is offering a free $20 E85 gift card at this year’s Wisconsin Farm Technology Days. The promotion is part of the celebration of reaching over 100 stations offering the clean, renewable fuel.
The gift cards will be available at the WCGA booth in tent D this week, offered from a variety of state merchants in exchange for a receipt showing a purchase of at least eight gallons of E85. The offer is limited to one per household.
“With gasoline prices hovering around $4 per gallon, American consumers must realize that ethanol and the country’s Renewable Fuels Standards are part of the solution for rising food and energy costs,” says Randy Woodruff, president of the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association. “Home-grown biofuels are replacing imported oil and helping lower gas prices as much as 40 cents per gallon. In addition, several recent studies have shown that petroleum prices impact retail food costs three times more than farm prices do, yet big oil and food companies continue trying to blame farmers for the high cost of groceries.”
Currently, there are 112 E85 fueling locations within the state of Wisconsin to fuel about 154,000 flexible fuel vehicles.
