Yep, it's that time of year again when we start to see some amazing prices on E85. This time around, the battle for the lowest prices will pit two fuel retailers against each other in a friendly rivalry that takes place on both sides of the St. Croix River dividing Minnesota and Wisconsin. The so-called "Biofuel Border Battle" lasts for just two hours on May 27th, but the remarkably low price of just $0.85 a gallon should draw a considerably amount of interest.
Backers of the event include the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, Wisconsin Corn Growers Association, American Lung Association, Clean Air Choice teams and many more. To entice drivers, the
ethanol stations lined up two mascots for the event; Goldy the Gopher from the University of Minnesota and Wisconsin's agricultural ambassador Alice in Dairyland. No, we are not making this up.
Now this is far from the first time that we've heard about ethanol price battles (read about some previous events here
) and it likely won't be the last either. Follow the link below for more details.
