"Businesses Flock To White House Ahead of Biofuel Rule"

"Officials at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) have been busy meeting with chemical and energy companies in recent days, ahead of the expected release of new biofuel standards."

"This week, the OMB has hosted four meetings on the upcoming Renewable Fuel Standard rules, which would require that refiners mix a certain amount of biofuel in with conventional gasoline.

The annual Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) target for 2014, which is expected to give more leeway to the oil-and-gas industry, has worried biofuel companies."
