Consumers in Ankeny, IA were treated to a little relief at the gas pump today when the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council teamed up with Kum & Go for a pre-race ethanol promotion.
Regular (E10) was selling for $2.50/gallon and E85 was $1.85. I filled up my flex fuel van before I left.
Four of the IndyCar drivers were on hand to help out including Team Ethanol driver, Ryan Hunter-Reay, pictured here, along with Ed Carpenter who is shaking hands with a lady who asked for their autographs.
I’ll have interviews and more pictures to come. We just got finished with the promotion and are taking a break to get something to eat.
