Trump wants to meet demand from US farmers for more ethanol gasoline

Less than a month before the congressional election, US President Donald Trump wants to meet farmers' demand for more ethanol gasoline. Trump wants to repeal the nationwide ban on the use of gasoline with an ethanol share of 15 percent (E15) in the summer, said a senior government official on Tuesday. The regulation of the environmental authority EPA is to reduce the smog danger. Trump was scheduled to talk about plans during the day in Iowa, one of the major agricultural states. Since ethanol is cheaper than crude oil in the US, the measure could contribute to lower gasoline prices. This is now according to the American Automobile Association, with 2.91 dollars per gallon (0.67 euros per liter), a good 40 US cents higher than last year. Among other things, the price of oil has risen because of US sanctions against Iran.
The larger use of E15 is the subject of a protracted dispute between the oil and agricultural industries. Both industries represent important presidential constituencies, farmers and workers. In the US, congressional elections will be held on 6 November, threatening Trump's Republicans to lose the majority in at least one chamber.
