Trump says ethanol deal will total 16 billion gallons

WASHINGTON, Oct 7 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that his administration's proposal to boost the biofuels market next year would bring the amount of corn-based ethanol mixed into the nation's fuel to 16 billion gallons (60.6 billion liters).

Trump's EPA had unveiled the plan https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-biofuels/trump-administration-pro... last week to boost U.S. biofuels consumption to help struggling farmers, but didn't provide an exact figure. The plan cheered the agriculture industry but triggered a backlash from Big Oil. (Reporting by Eric Beech; Writing by Richard Valdmanis; Editing by Sandra Maler)
