RFA launching ‘Ethanol Days of Summer’ contest to report prices

By Renewable Fuels Association | May 24, 2017

Reporting prices for higher ethanol blends this summer could win you $50 in free fuel per day. Beginning on Memorial Day, the Renewable Fuels Association is launching an “Ethanol Days of Summer” contest, allowing both retailers and consumers to report the price posted for E85 and other ethanol blends.

To enter, consumers must have a registered account on www.E85prices.com, where they can submit pricing for a chance to win, or on the mobile app. The website, acquired by RFA in 2015, is crowdsourced and offers updated prices for E85 and other ethanol blends, including E15, from thousands of stations across the country.

“We want to ensure consumers know about and have access to higher ethanol blends,” said RFA Vice President of Industry Relations Robert White. “E85prices.com is your one-stop online resource to find out where you can find them and what prices have been reported at each particular station. This contest will not only drive traffic to these stations, but it will help us maintain the best ethanol station locator website, along with pricing information for those stations. Those consumers that participate may even win some free fuel in the process.”

For the contest, no purchase is necessary, and users can submit prices for multiple stations each day. Daily winners will be drawn through Labor Day, and winners will be announced every two weeks.
