JEFFERSON CITY, MO – The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) welcomed the Gas City station in Romeoville, Illinois as the latest addition to the BioTrucker network. BioTrucker is a program that encourages truck stops to sell environmentally friendly, domestically produced biodiesel blends.
Biodiesel is an alternative to diesel fuel. It’s made from diverse renewable resources, such as recycled cooking oil and soybean oil.
Bill Schireman, Executive Vice President of Gas City, says they will be celebrating by offering customers a savings of 50 cents per gallon on the purchase of B11 – diesel fuel blended with 11 percent biodiesel – on Thursday, July 23 from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. The B11 blend, common in Illinois, normally sells for about the same price as regular diesel fuel.
