In an exception to the Clean Air Act, Biden will allow E15 gas to be sold this summer


A motorist fills up with gasoline containing ethanol in Des Moines, Iowa. President Biden will announce today that he will lift the summer restriction on gasoline containing the E15 ethanol blend.

The fuel is normally banned from sale in the summer to combat smog. Trump also allowed summer sales of the 15-percent ethanol blend in 2019 after U.S. farmers were hurt by his trade war with China.
