NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. biofuel credits for 2018 and 2019 climbed on Thursday following a Reuters report that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could issue fewer small-refinery waivers from the nation’s biofuel laws in coming weeks, market sources say.

Biofuel credits, which are used for compliance under the U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard, went from 8 to 13 cents each for 2018, and 16 to 19 cents each for 2019, market source say.
