An 'Unconventional' Fuel at an Unbelievable Price: Minnesota Station Cuts Cost of E85 by $1 Per Gallon
Date:8/29/2008

EAGAN, Minn., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Holiday Stationstore at 2660 Eagan Woods Drive in the Saint Paul suburb of Eagan will reduce the price of E85 by a dollar a gallon on Wednesday, September 3, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The promotion is timed to occur during the Republican National Convention, and the fleet of flexible fuel vehicles General Motors has made available to RNC officials and guests. There is a 15 gallon limit per flexible fuel vehicle.

The event also celebrates the success of the state's E85 and biodiesel infrastructure development program, which provides state grants as incentives to stations that install an E85 or biodiesel pump. Administered by the American Lung Association of Minnesota, the program has helped to make Minnesota the national leader in E85 infrastructure (more than 350 E85 stations) and E85 use (more than 21 million gallons sold in 2007). The Minnesota Clean Air Choice Team, a public private partnership, will promote E85 to RNC visitors through television ads, billboards and skyway posters. One billboard, "Addicted to Oil?" is already up on the eastbound lane of I-94, just past Snelling Avenue.

"In addition to the flexible fuel vehicles GM is providing for the convention, there are roughly 200,000 vehicles that can use E85 or gasoline in Minnesota right now," said Robert Moffitt, a spokesperson for the American Lung Association of Minnesota. "While the debate on offshore drilling continues, we want people to know that there is a clean air choice available to many motorists right now, using a cleaner-burning fuel that is made in Minnesota."

The event is organized by Holiday, Dakota/Rice Corn and Soybean Growers, Minnesota Corn Growers Association, National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition, General Motors Corporation, US Department of Energy-Clean Cities, American Lung Association of Minnesota and the Minnesota Clean Air Choice Team.
