Pump up the ethanol: ND blended fuel sales up 97 percent


More people in North Dakota are filling their cars with ethanol-blended fuel, officials said Friday, which has increased sales by 97 percent.

"It surely shows that ethanol fuels are competitive and consumers will choose them if they are available to them at the pump."
