Consumer Choice, NOT GOVERNMENT Mandates

THE PROPOSED FUEL MANDATE IN IOWA WILL PUT SMALL BUSINESSES OUT OF BUSINESS

bigstock-Gas-Station-Fuel-Pump-colorfu-3

Iowa’s fuel industry has long advocated the need for critical infrastructure upgrades that will enhance the state’s fuel distribution network. Currently, the vast majority of fueling stations in rural Iowa are unable to offer higher blended biofuels due to requirements mandated by the EPA.

The Fuel Choice Coalition supports markets - and not mandates - to grow renewable fuels like ethanol and biodiesel in our economy.

The facts make clear that today’s infrastructure is currently incapable of dispensing the products proposed by the mandate. Instead, the proposed fuel mandate will:

  • Force costs on small businesses

  • Leave many rural Iowans without a local convenience store

ABOUT

The Fuel Choice Coalition is a unified voice of Iowa fuel distributors, retailers, and transportation groups that support Iowans’ choices at the pump including with higher blended fuels, and fair markets for fuel distribution.The group opposes any government mandate that attempts to pick winners and losers at the pump and instead supports a focus on improving the infrastructure to truly sell higher-blended fuels.

 
 

CAMPAIGN Buzz

The following statement is attributable to Glenn Hasken, Chief Operating Officer of Molo Companies and past Chair of FUELIowa 

 

“Fuel retailers are concerned the unintended consequences of this bill will shut down hundreds of small gas stations in rural Iowa. We share Governor Reynolds’ goal of making higher blends of renewable fuel available to more consumers, particularly in small towns with older gas stations which need to be upgraded to make this a reality.” 

 

We have been negotiating with all stakeholders in an effort to find a mutually acceptable solution, but our position is clear—we will not support an approach which puts all of the burden on the most vulnerable small stores in rural Iowa that cannot afford to lose their limited retail fuel options.”
