The U.S. refining sector is a steadfast economic engine, supporting more than 2 million jobs and providing the affordable, reliable fuels on which America runs — the gasoline and diesel that take us to work and our kids to school, supply heavy construction equipment and enable first responders, and even power tractors on the farm.
In recent weeks, President Trump returned to Iowa to court U.S. farmers ahead of the official launch of his reelection campaign and to sign his much-anticipated rulemaking allowing year-round sales of E15, an unlawful action that the U.S. refining industry is challenging in court.
In recent weeks, ethanol industry proponents have petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to cease issuing Small Refinery Exemptions (SREs) that waive qualified small refineries from the costly biofuel blending obligations mandated in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
