Casey’s General Stores recently announced intentions to open 17 stations with E15 and E85 in Iowa, Illinois, and Kansas. The first of seven Iowa stations, located in Pella, is now offering E15 and E85.
“This opening marks a big milestone for E15,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Managing Director Lucy Norton. “Casey’s is more than just one of Iowa’s largest fuel retailers. It’s our pizzeria, our grocery store, our coffee shop. And soon residents in several cities will have lower-cost fuel options that also support rural economies. We are confident Casey’s and its customers will have a positive experience with these fuels and soon E15 and E85 will be the new normal for Casey’s stores.”
Iowa Corn Promotion Board President Larry Klever says Casey’s announcement is great news for rural Iowa. “Iowa’s corn farmers are excited to support Casey’s in expanding Iowans choices at the pump and providing consumers clean-burning, high performing homegrown ethanol blends.” The Iowa Corn Promotion Board is providing support for Casey’s new program to offer E15 and E85 blends for consumers.
