Tougher Gas Regulations Could Be Coming

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing tougher gas regulations that would limit the sulfur content in gasoline.

The proposed standard would require a reduction in sulfur that the EPA says could help the environment and peoples health. The EPA says the reduction would increase the cost of gas by less than a penny per gallon, but the gas industry says the price could increase nine cents a gallon.

The EPA is opening a public comment period, to give your comment go to http://www.epa.gov/otaq/tier3.htm

If the regulations are approved, they will go into effect in 2017.
