The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau President Brent Johnson: 
Iowa farmers ready to fuel the country

“With consumers facing record prices at the gas pump, Iowa farmers are equipped to step up to ease the financial burden of surging fuel prices.  As additional sanctions are placed on Russia for its egregious actions against the people of Ukraine, the price of fuel will continue to rise.  Biofuels are a homegrown and environmentally friendly product with untapped potential to support our nation’s farmers and rural communities while providing a more affordable option for consumers. American energy policy should prioritize American made fuel with the approval of higher blends and allowing for the year-round sale of E-15.”
