Why is my B20, B5?

I went in to fill up at my B20 station Today, but they had replaced it with B5. Anyone know why? Is this normal for them to change it this time of year? B5 is better than nothing, I suppose.

BTW, this is the Safeway in Bellevue, WA.

B20 will get thick in very cold weather where the B5 will act as regular diesel But will still have excellent lubrication qualities needed for older equipment. Also the B100 price has gone way up due to higher soybean prices.
