New Poll Says Voters Want E15 Available Year-Round

Voters say they want their E15, according to a new Morning Consult poll for the Renewable Fuels Association.

With retail gas prices remaining elevated, nearly 70 percent of poll respondents support increasing the availability of E15 to help lower fuel prices and support energy independence. Just 13 percent of those surveyed did not support expanded availability of E15. Meanwhile, 62 percent support recently introduced bipartisan legislation that would allow the lower-carbon E15 blend to be sold year-round nationwide. Only 15 percent of respondents do not support the legislation, while 23 percent had no opinion. Morning Consult polled 1,978 registered voters March 20-23, across all demographics.

In addition, the poll found that ethanol favorability and support for the Renewable Fuel Standard have reached record highs with 69 percent of respondents expressing a favorable opinion of ethanol, while 66 percent support the RFS. These are the highest numbers since RFA kicked off baseline polling in June 2016.
