U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Announces Biofuels Funding for Wisconsin Gas Stations

U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) has announced an infusion of over $3.5 million in funding for Wisconsin’s local gas stations. This initiative aims to boost the availability of homegrown biofuels, reduce fuel costs, and provide cleaner fuel alternatives to Wisconsinites. The funding stems from the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, supported by the Baldwin-backed Inflation Reduction Act.

“Homegrown biofuels bolster Wisconsin’s agricultural sector, lessen our reliance on foreign oil, and help reduce prices at the pump,” stated Senator Baldwin. “With the Inflation Reduction Act, we can lower costs for Wisconsinites. These grants will enable local gas stations to upgrade their infrastructure and increase the availability of cleaner, more affordable fuels, thus supporting Wisconsin’s farmers.”

Wisconsin Businesses Benefiting from Grants

The Bulk Petroleum Corporation is receiving $3,456,000 to bolster their infrastructure and enhance the sale and usage of renewable fuels. The grant affects stations in locations such as Black River Falls, Cudahy, Green Bay, Luxemburg, Milwaukee, Oak Creek, Sheboygan Falls, Sheboygan, Sturgeon Bay, Two Rivers, and Wisconsin Rapids.

Similarly, Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores, Inc. will receive $56,180 to fund eight dispensers in Tomah. This will provide cleaner and more affordable fuel alternatives at their gas station pumps.

Senator Baldwin’s efforts to increase biofuel usage, support Wisconsin’s agricultural sector, and reduce fuel costs are consistent. Last year, she effectively advocated for the Biden administration to permit the sale of E15 fuel during the summer months.
