Grassley supports increased ethanol blends

DES MOINES (AP) -- Iowa Senator Charles Grassley says he's also pushing to blend more ethanol into gasoline.

The plan would change the 10% ethanol blends now used at gas stations to blend as much as 15% ethanol into the fuel.

USDA Secretary and former Iowa governor Tom Vilsack told a farmers convention this week he thinks the change could come quickly. Vilsack and Gassley say the 15% ethanol blends would not hurt car engines.

Ultimately, it would be up the EPA decide if and how much to increase ethanol blends.
