With oil prices having doubled since December, ethanol is helping to keep gas prices in check. Here are some facts:
- Flex fuel vehicle users in Wisconsin are able to save 61 cents per gallon by using E85 instead of gasoline, according to E85prices.com.
- Ethanol is blended into nearly every gallon of gas sold in the state.
- According to E85prices.com, ethanol costs nearly 25% less than regular gasoline, which means even consumers who can’t use E85 can benefit from lower gas prices.
