Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – It’s “Pink at the Pump” month at some of the Iowa retailers who sell a higher blend of ethanol. Grant Menke (MEN-kee) of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association says it applies to E-15 and 28 Iowa stations are participating.
You may have noticed the promotion if you’ve filled up at a station with E-15 pumps. Participating locations have pink nozzle guards, to mark the grade of fuel that is part of the promotion.
The average price for regular unleaded in Iowa is currently $2.20 a gallon and E-15 is selling for about 20 cents less.
Local participating stations include “Murphy USA” stations in Mason City; the “Fast Stop” in Cresco; “Three Rivers FS” in Elkader; “Fuel Time” in St. Ansgar and the “Feed Ranch” in Waukon.
