This segment from the April 15, 2022, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Kara St. Cyr’s report on the Biden Administration temporarily waiving the ethanol rule allowing gasoline with a 15% ethanol blend to be sold in the summer months in an effort to lower gas prices. She interviews David Dismukes, the executive director of the LSU Center for Energy Studies, who discusses his view that the move will have very little impact in Louisiana.
