The Casey’s General Store chain announced a new partnership with Prime the Pump, a Growth Energy partner and nonprofit organization dedicated to helping give more consumers E15 at their local pumps. Casey’s says it will expand the offering of E15 to potentially more than 500 of its locations over the next few years.
E15 is currently approved for nine out of ten cars on the road today and American drivers have surpassed five billion miles on it. Nathaniel Doddridge, Casey’s Director of Fuels, says, “We’re excited to partner with Prime the Pump and Growth Energy to build on the success and accelerate the offering of E15 to more of our customers.”
Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says they’re very happy to see the partnership between Prime the Pump and Casey’s, saying they’re taking it to record-breaking heights to give more American drivers access to a clean-burning option at the pump. “Casey’s has seen the value E15 brings to their business and their customers, and will soon become the nation’s largest E15 retailer,” she says. “The announcement underscores the critical need for lawmakers to approve the year-round use of E15.”
