N.C. may remove ethanol labels from pumps

By | March 01, 2002
North Carolina's Gasoline and Oil Inspection Board approved a measure repealing the requirement of labeling gasoline pumps that contain ethanol, the state Department of Agriculture announced this month. The measure, which would affect 10% ethanol blends, is to enhance the use of ethanol in the state. The state is not a federal RFG area, but ethanol-blended gasoline is used in 4 out of 5 stations. The measure, though, would allow stations to voluntarily continue advertising ethanol on its pumps, through the labels. The measure will go for a review by the Rules Review Commission and then on to the state General Assembly for final approval.
