(Adds table) NEW YORK, Aug 18 (Reuters) - The United States generated fewer renewable fuel blending credits in July versus the month prior, data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) showed on Thursday. About 1.21 billion ethanol (D6) blending credits were generated in July, versus 1.29 billion in June, according to the data. About 421 million biodiesel (D4) blending credits were generated in July, versus 491 million the month prior.
