Ethanol-Blended Fuel Monthly Market Share
in Nebraska

In Nebraska, most ethanol is sold in a blended fuel—10 percent ethanol with 90 percent gasoline (called E-10) or 85 percent ethanol with 15 percent gasoline (called E85). Of the total gasoline and ethanol–blended fuel sold in the state in December 2019, 94.6 percent was an ethanol blend.

The market share for ethanol–blended fuel is shown in Figure 1 and the data table below on a monthly basis. In Figure 1, it can be seen that December's percentage is far above the five–year range, the five–year average, and 2018's December percentage. This was due to gasoline's low consumption in comparison to ethanol–blended fuel's consumption.
