The Minnesota Department of Commerce released its year-end station report outlining ethanol-blended fuel sales for 2017. The numbers detail the building momentum behind ethanol-blended fuels in Minnesota.
First, 2017 was a banner year for E15, which totaled more than 19 million gallons in sales. Compare that volume to 2016 when 5.7 million gallons were sold, and it is more than a 230-percent increase year-over-year. More than 4.6 million gallons were sold in December 2017 alone.
