American Coalition of Ethanol responds to California’s gas car ban

California is aiming to halt the sales of new gas-powered cars by the year 2035 to transition to electric vehicles. The executive order, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, is creating concern for the nation’s biofuel sector.

Brian Jennings, the CEO of the American Coalition of Ethanol, spoke with RFD-TV News on the executive order and value of the combustible engine.

“Instead of putting a target on the back of internal combustion engines, what we would prefer the governor of California would do is focus on ways to power those engines with cleaner fuel, and that is where ethanol, of course, plays a pivotal role,” he said. “We need to push for higher blends of ethanol in California.”
