STREATOR, Ill. (DTN) -- The American Petroleum Institute submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding EPA's proposed reduction to the 2014 Renewable Fuels Standard blending mandate Tuesday -- the final day for public comment, with the oil and gas trade association saying the agency should lower this year's mandate even more than proposed.

In a news conference releasing API's comments Wednesday morning, Patrick Kelly, API senior fuels policy adviser, said the renewable fuel blending volume for 2014 should be 9.7% of the total gasoline demand, or 12.88 billion gallons of renewable fuel, which is primarily satisfied with corn-based ethanol.
