Ethanol-blended gasoline will be 10 cents less per gallon on June 10 at Goode to Go in North Sioux City, S.D., during a Yellow Dime Promotion. The South Dakota Corn Growers Association (SDCGA) is co-sponsoring the event which will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Motorists who chose ethanol-blended fuel during the promotion will receive one yellow dime back for every gallon of ethanol they purchase. The yellow dimes handed out during the event will circulate throughout the community, showing the impact of corn and ethanol production on the local economy.
Goode to Go is offering the Yellow Dime promotion in conjunction with their Grand Opening celebration. They will be offering many in-store specials and several give-a-ways along with the Yellow Dime savings on ethanol.
Goode to Go is unique in their full ethanol slate offering – all of their fuel contains 10 percent ethanol including their premium grade, mid-grade and regular unleaded plus they offer E-85. So choosing ethanol and saving 10 cents per gallon during the Yellow Dime event will be easy for motorists on June 10.
“Goode to Go is clearly a strong supporter of ethanol blended fuel and their customers benefit by a clean-burning fuel which will also lessen our dependence on foreign oil. Their Yellow Dime promotion on June 10 will demonstrate the benefits of ethanol and its impact in local communities,” said Reid Jensen, corn producer from Burbank, S.D. and board member for the SDCGA.
South Dakota has 11 plants producing ethanol in Scotland, Aberdeen, Huron, Wentworth, Big Stone City, Watertown, Groton, Chancellor, Aurora, Rosholt and Hudson. It is projected that with new plants coming on line and expansions planned, South Dakota will produce an estimated 675 million gallons of ethanol per year by 2007.
