Bosselman Travel Center to Unveil Flex Fuel Pump; Governor to Attend
by Robert Pore (Grand Island Independent) Gov. Pete Ricketts will help cut the ribbon at the unveiling of the Bosselman Travel Center’s new flex fuel pumps on Friday.
“We are excited to host Gov. Ricketts for our ribbon cutting at the Bosselman Travel Center in Grand Island,” said Charlie Bosselman, president of Bosselman Enterprises.
Bosselman has been pumping fuel since the company opened in Grand Island in 1948, he said.
As part of the celebration, the center will offer a special fuel promotion from 4 to 7 p.m. Clean 88 (E15) will sell for $1.88 per gallon; E85 for 85 cents per gallon; and $1 off per gallon of automotive biodiesel.
Bosselman said the company has been a pioneer in selling Nebraska-based renewable fuels at all its locations.
In 2017, more than 2.1 billion gallons of ethanol and nearly 6.4 million metric tons of distillers grains (livestock feed) were made through Nebraska’s 25 ethanol plants, employing more than 1,300 people with an average salary of more than $50,000. READ MORE
