Oil Lobby Launches New Campaign against Ethanol Mandate

Submitted by on October 29, 2015 – 12:30 pmNo Comment

by Devin Henry (The Hill)  The American Petroleum Institute (API) will run a “multifaceted advocacy campaign” against the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) for the next month ahead of a deadline for the Obama administration to finalize three years of standards under the mandate.

Bob Greco, the group director of API’s downstream and industry operations, said Wednesday that the campaign would include television, radio and online ads, focused on “the negative consequences higher ethanol mandates could have on consumers.” The campaign will be targeted at the Washington, D.C. market.

API’s ads call the RFS “Washington red tape” and blame it for raising fuel prices and hurting the environment.

“Ultimately Congress has the responsibility to repeal or significantly reform this outdated and potentially dangerous program,” Greco said Wednesday.
