The future of E15 and shipping lanes

Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack said Friday that he expects an E15 blend will become reality for consumers and producers of the fuel additive. E15 is a blend of 85 percent gasoline and 15 percent ethanol. The USDA could help open the door to the new blend if the Environmental Protection Agency approves the new fuel mix.

No official announcement is scheduled, but Vilsack says the E15 policy change will likely happen this year.

Also on Friday, Vilsack said he doubts shipping lanes will be closed because of the major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Those same shipping lanes were closed temporarily following Hurricane Katrina.

Friday’s comments were made in an extended interview between Market to Market host Mark Pearson and Secretary Vilsack in our studios.

***Update*** The official transcript is posted here now our website.

The entire interview will likely be posted next week on our website.
