The article reports that state Senator Charles Grassley is pushing more E-85 oils, a 15% ethanol blend to every gasoline station in Iowa. It is stated that being a strong supporter of ethanol, Grassley secured an extension of tax credits for small ethanol plants and biodiesel distributors in the 2005 energy bill. Moreover, in 2006, he asked the chief executives at the nation's four largest oil companies to allow independent owners of branded stations to sell E-85 or B-20.
