Ethanol Days of Summer Contest


Typically, from Memorial Day until Labor Day, the Renewable Fuels Association hosts the Ethanol Days of Summer Contest, which rewards a contestant daily with $50 in free fuel for reporting prices of E15 and E85.  Given the impacts of COVID-19 on the demand for fuel this summer driving season, the 4th Annual Ethanol Days of Summer Contest has been postponed until 2021.
