Trump announced the lifting of a ban on summer sales of gasoline blended with 15 percent ethanol, known as E15, at a closed-door meeting at the White House, Republican senators told reporters after the meeting. The announcement caps a months-long effort by the White House to thread the needle between rival corn and oil industry interests, in an attempt to boost ethanol demand while cutting compliance costs for refiners.

    Trump to lift summer ban on higher-ethanol gasoline ahead of elections

    U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday plans to lift a ban on summer sales of higher-ethanol blend of gasoline, known as E15, delivering a long-sought win to the Farm Belt ahead of November's midterm elections and angering the refining industry.

Those rules will seek stop parties from hoarding the credits and driving up the cost of complying with biofuels blending laws. The announcement will cap a months-long effort by the White House to bring rival corn and oil industries together over reforms to boost ethanol demand while alleviating compliance costs for refiners.
