State Rebates Help Local Biodiesel Cost Less than Overseas Petroleum

Thanks to Oregon’s biodiesel consumer tax rebates passed in 2007, B99 (99% biodiesel) now costs less than petroleum diesel in Southern Oregon. The State of Oregon offers all B99 end-users a 50-cent per gallon tax rebate up to $200 or 400 gallons per year. (http://www.oregon.gov/ENERGY/RENEW/docs/330-150Draft.pdf) With Rogue Valley diesel prices constantly climbing to an average of $2.45 a gallon, local biodiesel retailers are finally at a price advantage. The true cost of fuel is hard to measure, as every dollar of biodiesel strengthens the energy independence of the United States economy, instead of increasing our reliance on overseas petroleum. Over 40% of a petro-dollar goes overseas.

Rising Phoenix Biofuels is leading the market, with retail B99 biodiesel in Phoenix selling at $2.59 a gallon. Not only is this the most affordable biodiesel on the West Coast, but with 50 cents a gallon rebated from the state, the actual consumer cost is only $2.09, 30 cents below the petroleum diesel down the street. The low markup, 50-cent PUC & off-road discounts, and domestic sources of fuel make them the obvious choice for the conscientious consumer and anyone driving on a budget. All biodiesel sold at U.S. pumps is ASTM certified under strict national standards, and other biodiesel stations can be found at www.biodiesel.org

Biodiesel can be used in all diesel engines, including motor boats, heavy equipment, RV’s, freight trucks, and even home heating. It can be extracted from a variety of renewable sources including Canola, Soy, Algae, and even recycled oils from Kettle Chips’ plant in Salem. Extensive EPA testing shows decreased pollution and improved lubricity and cetane from the use of biodiesel blends. We can all help improve our children’s future by simple choices of fuel.

Rising Phoenix Helps Ashland Become First City in Southern Oregon to Use Homegrown Fuel

Ashland Becomes First City in Southern Oregon to Use Homegrown Fuel



By switching to B5 biodiesel in June, the City of Ashland became Southern Oregon’s largest municipal fleet running on domestic biodiesel blends. By replacing 5% of their 38,000-gallon annual diesel usage with a domestic biodegradable fuel, they save 30,000 pounds of greenhouse gasses from Rogue Valley skies. In a year, that’s like taking 3 of their cars off the road, or importing 45 less barrels of foreign oil.… Continue

In Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Court Finds That Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated the Law |THE INDIGENOUS AMERICAN

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline.

Stop ignoring Arizona on public lands | AZC

Gov. Doug Ducey’s assertion that Arizonans oppose the Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument is unfounded. State polls show vast support for protecting the Grand Canyon watershed from uranium mining and preserving the threatened cultural and historical sites in the region.
