Roadrunner Transportation Systems reported a net loss of $91.2 million for full-year 2017 compared with a loss of $360.3 million in 2016. The diluted loss per share was $2.37 for 2017 compared with a diluted loss per share of $9.40 for 2016.

Members of biofuel and gasoline trade organizations alike told members of a House subcommittee that they have concerns about the future of advanced biofuels under the federal Renewable Fuel Standard program. Some want fixes to the program, while others want it to go away.
