President Donald Trump lifted summertime restrictions on E15 gasoline yesterday making it easier to sell more ethanol in vehicle fuel.


According to Bloomberg, Trump said he signed a memo telling the Environmental Protection Agency to make gasoline with 15 percent ethanol or E15 available during the summer months. He announced the change during a rally in Iowa, a top corn and ethanol producer.


“Today we are unleashing the power of E15 to fuel our country all year long,” Trump told the crowd in Council Bluffs, Bloomberg reported. “Promises made, promises kept.”
