Pittsburgh’s “Boutique” Gasoline
GASP rang in the new year by delivering comments on Pennsylvania’s potential changes to its low RVP gasoline requirement for the Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley Area. Fun, right?
Due to our high levels of ozone in the region, we must use a type of gasoline in the warmer months that is less likely to evaporate–meaning less pollution gets into the air. Recently, certain lawmakers and industry groups have pushed this requirement onto the chopping block, but in these comments, we explain why the clean gas rules should be kept–and why the state is legally obligated to do so as well.
