    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. farm-state Senators on Wednesday urged federal regulators to investigate allegations raised by a biofuel trade group that the oil industry uses "strong arm tactics" to prevent widespread use of higher blends of ethanol in gasoline.

    A report from the Renewable Fuels Association this week said major oil companies have discouraged the sale of ethanol at levels of 15 percent per gallon (E15) and 85 percent per gallon (E85) at retail stations, by using distribution contracts that make it expensive or nearly impossible for franchises to offer the blends. (RFA report: http://bit.ly/1mIvQi9)

    Senators Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, and Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, said on Wednesday that the report bolstered the case for the Federal Trade Commission to evaluate whether the oil industry has engaged in anti-competitive practices.

    "This new report underscores the need for the FTC to look into these allegations, and I will continue pushing to ensure that consumers have access to the cheaper, cleaner fuels they deserve," Klobuchar, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee's antirust panel, said in a statement.

    The Renewable Fuel Standard requires increasing amounts of ethanol and biodiesel to be blended into U.S. fuel supplies through 2022.

    Higher blends of ethanol at the pump are needed to avoid the so called "blend wall," the point when federal law will require the use of more ethanol than can be absorbed at the 10 percent per gallon level that dominates U.S. gasoline stations.

    Oil companies, who have long called for repeal of the biofuel mandate, say retailers have been reluctant to sell E15 due to concerns that it could harm engines in older vehicles, and that consumer do not want to buy the product.

    Without infrastructure to accommodate the widespread sale of E15, refiners have said they would be forced to sell less gasoline or export more refined products to meet the law's requirements.

    Klobuchar and Grassley have pressed the FTC for almost a year to probe whether oil industry practices regarding ethanol violate antitrust laws. It is unclear if the agency has taken action on the matter.

    The RFA report found that independent, or unbranded, retail gas stations were four to six times more likely to offer E85 and 40 times more likely to carry E15 gasoline than stations associated with major oil company brands.

    “Big oil interests can’t argue for repeal of the RFS because it doesn’t work when they’re the ones responsible for ensuring that consumers don’t have the choice for higher ethanol blends," Grassley said.

    He also blasted the Environmental Protection Agency for a draft plan that would slash 2014 biofuel use targets in light of the looming blend wall, saying the agency had "fallen for Big Oil's rhetoric."

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. farm-state Senators on Wednesday urged federal regulators to investigate allegations raised by a biofuel trade group that the oil industry uses "strong arm tactics" to prevent widespread use of higher blends of ethanol in gasoline.

    A report from the Renewable Fuels Association this week said major oil companies have discouraged the sale of ethanol at levels of 15 percent per gallon (E15) and 85 percent per gallon (E85) at retail stations, by using distribution contracts that make it expensive or nearly impossible for franchises to offer the blends.

    Senators Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, and Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, said on Wednesday that the report bolstered the case for the Federal Trade Commission to evaluate whether the oil industry has engaged in anti-competitive practices.

    "This new report underscores the need for the FTC to look into these allegations, and I will continue pushing to ensure that consumers have access to the cheaper, cleaner fuels they deserve," Klobuchar, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee's antirust panel, said in a statement.

    The Renewable Fuel Standard requires increasing amounts of ethanol and biodiesel to be blended into U.S. fuel supplies through 2022.

    Higher blends of ethanol at the pump are needed to avoid the so called "blend wall," the point when federal law will require the use of more ethanol than can be absorbed at the 10 percent per gallon level that dominates U.S. gasoline stations.

    Oil companies, who have long called for repeal of the biofuel mandate, say retailers have been reluctant to sell E15 due to concerns that it could harm engines in older vehicles, and that consumer do not want to buy the product.

    Without infrastructure to accommodate the widespread sale of E15, refiners have said they would be forced to sell less gasoline or export more refined products to meet the law's requirements.

    Klobuchar and Grassley have pressed the FTC for almost a year to probe whether oil industry practices regarding ethanol violate antitrust laws. It is unclear if the agency has taken action on the matter.

    The RFA report found that independent, or unbranded, retail gas stations were four to six times more likely to offer E85 and 40 times more likely to carry E15 gasoline than stations associated with major oil company brands.

    “Big oil interests can’t argue for repeal of the RFS because it doesn’t work when they’re the ones responsible for ensuring that consumers don’t have the choice for higher ethanol blends," Grassley said.

    He also blasted the Environmental Protection Agency for a draft plan that would slash 2014 biofuel use targets in light of the looming blend wall, saying the agency had "fallen for Big Oil's rhetoric."

    U.S. senators press for probe of report that oil companies blocked ethanol

    By Ayesha Rascoe

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. farm-state Senators on Wednesday urged federal regulators to investigate allegations raised by a biofuel trade group that the oil industry uses "strong arm tactics" to prevent widespread use of higher blends of ethanol in gasoline.

    A report from the Renewable Fuels Association this week said major oil companies have discouraged the sale of ethanol at levels of 15 percent per gallon (E15) and 85 percent per gallon (E85) at retail stations, by using distribution contracts that make it expensive or nearly impossible for franchises to offer the blends. (RFA report: http://bit.ly/1mIvQi9)

    Senators Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, and Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, said on Wednesday that the report bolstered the case for the Federal Trade Commission to evaluate whether the oil industry has engaged in anti-competitive practices.

    "This new report underscores the need for the FTC to look into these allegations, and I will continue pushing to ensure that consumers have access to the cheaper, cleaner fuels they deserve," Klobuchar, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee's antirust panel, said in a statement.

    The Renewable Fuel Standard requires increasing amounts of ethanol and biodiesel to be blended into U.S. fuel supplies through 2022.

    Higher blends of ethanol at the pump are needed to avoid the so called "blend wall," the point when federal law will require the use of more ethanol than can be absorbed at the 10 percent per gallon level that dominates U.S. gasoline stations.

    Oil companies, who have long called for repeal of the biofuel mandate, say retailers have been reluctant to sell E15 due to concerns that it could harm engines in older vehicles, and that consumer do not want to buy the product.

    Without infrastructure to accommodate the widespread sale of E15, refiners have said they would be forced to sell less gasoline or export more refined products to meet the law's requirements.

    Klobuchar and Grassley have pressed the FTC for almost a year to probe whether oil industry practices regarding ethanol violate antitrust laws. It is unclear if the agency has taken action on the matter.

    The RFA report found that independent, or unbranded, retail gas stations were four to six times more likely to offer E85 and 40 times more likely to carry E15 gasoline than stations associated with major oil company brands.

    “Big oil interests can’t argue for repeal of the RFS because it doesn’t work when they’re the ones responsible for ensuring that consumers don’t have the choice for higher ethanol blends," Grassley said.

    He also blasted the Environmental Protection Agency for a draft plan that would slash 2014 biofuel use targets in light of the looming blend wall, saying the agency had "fallen for Big Oil's rhetoric."

  • High crude, shifting trade patterns brighten ethanol prospects

    By Susanne Retka Schill | June 19, 2014



    FarmDocDaily.

    .
    .
    An extended period of higher crude oil and gasoline prices and low corn prices could result in surprisingly large amount of corn used for ethanol production, conclude University of Illinois economists Darrel Good and Scott Irwin in a recent analysis posted on FarmDocDaily.

    The economists note the recent decline in U.S. ethanol imports and expansion in exports starting last fall. “Imports and exports were evenly balanced in September 2013, but net exports were 25 million gallons in October 2013 and averaged nearly 60 million gallons per month from November 2013 through April 2014,” they report. Brazil led in U.S. ethanol purchases, with smaller increases in imports by India, the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates and South Korea.

    Monthly U.S. trade data will be monitored closely to see if the favorable trade balance will continue. “The recent run-up in crude oil and wholesale gasoline prices and the decline in wholesale ethanol prices have made ethanol attractively priced as an octane enhancer and as a substitute for other gasoline feedstocks. A continuation of that favorable price relationship would be expected to increase both world consumption of ethanol and exports of U.S. ethanol,” the analysis says.

    Domestically, there is a growing opportunity for domestic ethanol consumption to expand beyond mandated consumption levels, they continue. “Positive blending margins should incentivize the expansion of consumption of higher blends of ethanol, both E15 and E85. The pace of expansion will be determined by expectations for the duration of favorable blending margins and the speed at which the deployment of infrastructure can be put in place. The duration of higher crude oil prices will be influenced by the extent and duration of production interruptions in the Middle East.”

    These market factors may push ethanol production levels to
