Biden to announce emergency waiver to lift ban on ethanol sales to control gasoline prices

-

Why are rental and home prices soaring in the US? 3:15 (CNN) – United States President Joe Biden will announce new steps his administration is taking to address rising gasoline prices across the country on Tuesday. These measures include emergency actions to expand sales of biofuels, counteracting rising energy prices amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Biden is expected to announce that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will issue an emergency waiver that will allow the year-round sale of E15 gasoline, which contains a 15% ethanol blend. The announcement will be made on a trip to Menlo, Iowa, where he will visit POET Bioprocessing, a biofuels plant that specializes in creating bioethanol. The sale of E15 gasoline is generally prohibited from June to mid-September due to air quality concerns. Under former President Donald Trump, the EPA issued an order allowing permanent sales of the biofuel blend year-round in 2019, but the order was overturned last year by the US Circuit Court of Appeals. Biden’s announcement, a senior administration official said, “is distinct from” his predecessor’s efforts to expand ethanol sales in that it “is based on the current circumstance, which is a fuel supply emergency.” Mexico’s northern border faces gasoline shortages 3:36According to White House estimates, E15 sales could save consumers 10 cents per gallon on average, while reducing dependence on foreign fuels. As part of Tuesday’s announcement, the EPA will also take steps to facilitate the expanded use of biofuel, including outreach to states and changes to the labeling of E15 fuel pumps at gas stations across the country. During Monday’s press conference, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki noted that suspending the ban on the sale of higher ethanol blend fuels in the summer was on “the menu of options” that the administration was considering “to ensure that the supply in the market meets the demand, thus lowering the price”. Biden’s joint strategy to lower fuel prices The move follows Biden’s announcement last month of a historic release of oil from US reserves, including one million barrels per day from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve .for the next six months. That is part of a “wartime bridge” to increase oil production as efforts by the United States and global oil companies kick in after the coronavirus pandemic. “The president believes that the actions of a dictator on the other side of the world should not affect what families pay at the pump here at home,” the White House said in a fact sheet announcing the action that was shared with CNN. “Today’s actions also reinforce the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of real energy independence and commitment to a long-term strategy to spur smart growth and the adoption of sustainable local fuels.” What effects would the release of US oil have? 7:22Still, the administration stops short of sanctioning Russian energy exports and, instead, the senior official points to “a set of actions that we believe have generated a severe impact on the Russian economy.” “Also in the United States, through action by the president and with bipartisan support, we banned all energy imports from Russia to the United States. We understand that other countries are in a different position. Obviously we are in a strong position, as an exporter net energy, to do that, although it had real effects and price impacts that the president has now been working to mitigate,” the official told reporters on Monday. The official continued: “But we’ve taken a number of strong steps when it comes to the effects on the Russian economy, and we’re going to continue to work with our partners and allies, as we have, to continue to build on that.”
