IABRN — As people get ready to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is reminding motorists about the benefits of filling up with E15.

According to AAA, consumers traveling this Thanksgiving by automobile is up 2.8 percent from last year, with 49.3 million cars expected to be on the road. That is the highest number since 2005. With E15 now available at more than 2,000 stations nationwide, there’s no reason to not fill-up with the cleaner burning more cost-effective fuel.

A few benefits of filling up with E15 include:

– E15 is between 3 and 10 cents less expensive than regular gas.

– Corn ethanol is cleaner burning and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 40-45 percent.

– The number of E15 locations continues to grow and is available in 30 states.

– The number of locations offering E15 continues to increase!

NCGA also released this infographic to encourage motorists to look at their other choice at the pump; ethanol.
