Across Nebraska and Iowa, 87-octane will be disappearing from gas pumps. You'll likely notice the changeover closer to the end of the month.

Providers who service the state have discontinued the unleaded gasoline. It will be replaced with 84-octane, which has more ethanol. Experts say that’s good news for farmers and drivers.

"I really don't know what to think about that,” said a customer. “I usually go with the cheaper one anyway, which would be the 88 or 89, so 84, if it's going to be cheaper then that's good."

If you still want your gas ethanol-free, then 91-octane will still be an option, but it will cost a little more.
