INDIANAPOLIS — Policy advocates and fuel retailers are promoting higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel.
Nathaniel Doddridge, vice president of fuels for Casey’s, said the immediate future for biofuels is strong.
Casey’s has 2,200 locations — of which more than half are in towns of 5,000 people or less.
“We’ve grown our fuel footprint,” Doddridge said. “We’re at over 300 locations now nationwide for E15, over 1,000 locations for biodiesel.
“We’re surrounded by soybeans and corn. It makes natural sense for us to blend those two things together and say, why can’t we be on the forefront of having higher blends?”
Doddridge said Casey’s is adding more stores, many in the heart of rural America.
“We will sell higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel at every new store we open,” he said.
