NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is expected to publish a dual rule lifting the summer ban on higher-ethanol blends of gasoline and reforming the billion-dollar biofuel credit trading market by Wednesday, according to two sources briefed on the matter.

The EPA is moving swiftly to publish the rule allowing sales of so-called E15 gasoline ahead of the summer driving season, helping keep a promise President Donald Trump made to Midwest farmers last year.
