More retailers in Nebraska are selling midlevel ethanol blends for flex-fuel vehicles, but the state still lags behind Iowa and other states in offering the blends, industry executives said. "Retailers are ... understanding the importance of ethanol. It's a locally produced, homegrown fuel," said Kim Clark, director of biofuel development at the Nebraska Corn Board. Nebraska is "certainly in the top 10 nationally [for number of flex-fuel pump locations], but within the region, we'd like to do better than we are," said Todd Sneller, administrator of the Nebraska Ethanol Board.
