E85 station coming to Pittsburgh this week, two more by year's end

I wrote Monday about how Pennsylvania is making a big push to get out of their coal history and moving into a greener energy future. Here are a few more details on how General Motors, VeraSun and Sheetz gas stations are working with the state will do this. VeraSun announced that its partnership with GM would provide VE85 (VeraSun's brand-name E85) to three Sheetz stations in the Pittsburgh area. The first shipments will arrive this week to one station, with the two other stores getting the fuel by the end of the year. There are 322 Sheetz gas stations in America. GM and VeraSun have partnerships with third-party retailers in three other states – South Dakota, Illinois, and Minnesota – to promote E85.
