Reuters exclusively reports White House delaying biofuel mandates due to political concerns

Reuters exclusively reported that the White House has delayed an annual process meant to decide how much ethanol and other biofuels U.S. oil refiners need to blend into their fuel each year, as it seeks a solution for an issue that pits refinery workers against corn farmers. Lawmakers who represent constituents from both industries have been pushing the Biden administration on the issue for months. Refiners want low volumes of biofuels to keep costs down, while the farm industry wants high volumes to pump up sales of corn-based ethanol and other products.
