Governors of Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri are asking the Environmental Protection Agency to give approval of an expansion of the federal requirement for more biodiesel production in the U.S.

A year ago, the average price for a gallon of diesel hit an all time high of just over $5 a gallon in Iowa. It’s fallen to about $3.72 a gallon today according to AAA reported Radio Iowa.
