E85 Stations Hit the 1,000 Mark

There are now 1,000 publicly and privately accessed E85 fueling locations throughout the United States according to the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition (NEVC). That number represents about 0.6% of the number of gasoline fueling stations in the US (170,000).

The number of E85 stations has grown significantly in just a short period of time. Below is an approximation of how many E85 outlets were in operation over the past several years:

January 2003: 100
January 2004: 150
January 2005: 285
January 2006: 600

In October of 2005, the station count was 438; the number has more than doubled in 12 months!
