Oil Companies Criticized for Lack of Ethanol Pumps

April 11, 2006

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Major oil companies are now being questioned about their alternative-fuel policies, according to Reuters. While the Bush administration is pushing the use of E-85, there are only about 650 service stations out of 167,000 nationwide that sell the renewable fuels. Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and the state’s two senators, Richard Durbin and Barack Obama, recently sent letters to the heads of six major oil companies, asking if the companies have any policies or advocate any practices that prohibit or discourage the construction, installation, and operation of the ethanol and biodiesel pumps at service stations. According to the report, U.S. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman has said he will meet representatives of the major oil companies to discuss how they are making alternative fuels available.
