DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - Regular unleaded gasoline is disappearing rapidly from North Dakota stations, and not everyone is happy about it.
North Dakota service stations are moving away from offering 87 octane gasoline that does not contain ethanol. That's in response to a federal renewable fuel standard.
Mike Staudinger, general manager of DJ's Tesoro station in Dickinson, says his station made the switch last week. He says there's been little response from customers so far.
North Dakota Petroleum Marketers Association President Mike Rud says his group is not happy about the change. He says there's still a big demand for regular gasoline without ethanol, and people with older vehicles cannot use ethanol blends.
