Cheap gas draws a crowd.
The line leading to a Kum and Go at 108th and Giles in Sarpy county stretched for several blocks. Drivers waiting to fill their flex fuel tanks with e-85 for eighty five cents a gallon. Corn growers and ethanol producers are sponsors. Some vehicle owners who normally spend up to a hundred dollars pay barely twenty dollars for a tank of gas.
One gas buyer says, "I don't have an issue with it it doesn't burn that bad to me. "
Sasha Forsen of Green Plains says, " I think the biggest incentive is the cost. I think people are really excited to save money today and its really great so many."
Ethanol board staffers even pumped the gas for buyers. The four hour price cut at two metro locations fueled the purchase of an estimated four thousand gallons of e-85.
