Senator says Nebraska’s an ethanol state—not an EV state


Yet another state says it’s not ready for the spread of electric vehicles.

Nebraska U.S. Sen. Pete Ricketts instead says there is plenty of ethanol available.

“We’re a rural state. We don’t have chargers all over the place,” he told a recent panel of stakeholders and policy experts who discussed alternatives to electric vehicles.

“If you don’t have a plan for generating energy and you don’t have a way to get all the critical minerals, what does that mean? The price is going to stay high.”
