Garrett E-15 in Iowa E-15 (a gasoline blend containing 15 percent ethanol) is becoming more available in Iowa though at present only a few retailers sell it. The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association reports that through May 31, 2013, 83,000 gallons of E-15 were sold with no reported problems. Because of the substantial price advantage, it is expected that more and more E-15 will be sold. E-15 sells for about 22 cents per gallon less than regular gasoline, with no ethanol and 11 cents per gallon less than E-10. The prod- uct is approved for 2001 and newer vehicles. Retailers must register with the EPA to sell E-15 and comply with labeling and survey requirements. Food Stamp Work Waivers Able-bodied Iowans without children, who are not working, will no longer be eligible for the Food Assis- tance Program, formerly known as food stamps as of October 1. During the recession, the work requirement had'been waived. Because the Iowa economy has im- proved, the work waiver will expire. It is estimated that this will affect about 6,000 Iowans. Residents in many other states, where the economy is not doing as well as here in Iowa, will still be eligible for the waiver. In an attempt to reduce fraud and abuse, recipients now re- ceive Electronic Benefit Transfer cards. However, if one searches "EBT fraud" on the internet, a number of an- ecdotal instances of fraud will still be found.
