The Environmental Protection Agency announced it is scaling back its ethanol blending requirement for 2014. Refiners had voiced concerns about putting more biofuels into the already strained fuel supply.

The agency has lowered the amount of ethanol that must be blended into U.S. fuel supplies from 16.55 billion gallons in 2013 to 15.21 billion gallons in 2014. The refining industry warned the agency earlier this year that refiners were reaching the maximum amount of ethanol that could safely be blended into the fuel supply, known as the "blendwall.”
