NEW YORK - U.S. regulators on Friday unveiled much-anticipated targets for the blending of renewable fuels into motor fuel for the three years to 2016, proposing some 17.4 billion gallons of renewable fuels must be used in gasoline or diesel next year.
Renewable energy promoter Darrell Smith of Forest City, Iowa, finalized an agreement to drop his appeal to Iowa sanctions that strip him permanently of licenses to sell insurance or investments in that state. Smith agreed to pay a $5,000 civil penalty.
FLOODWOOD, Minn. — Steve Traeger drives the 200-horsepower, all-wheel-drive tractor into a wall of willow and alder.
