Bush Eases Environmental Rules on Gasoline

Man! The oil companies must love having neocons in charge!

Bush Eases Environmental Rules on Gasoline

By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer
1 hour ago

WASHINGTON - President Bush on Tuesday ordered a temporary suspension of environmental rules for gasoline, making it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly dampen prices at the pump. He also halted for the summer the purchase of crude oil for the government's emergency reserve.

Easing the environment rules will allow refiners greater flexibility in providing oil supplies since they will not have to use certain additives such as ethanol to meet clean air standards.

Though I get your point, I think UD's point might be that rather than pressure the oil companies to reduce there profit margins and quit gouging the public, the Bush administration chose to gut some more environmental regulations.

I would guess that you all missed the news report today that indicated that President Bush has asked for an investigation into the oil companies gouging the U.S. public.

Is this something you expected or is it just that the president is doing his job?

I know, Jim. And I’m sure that UD, whether he actually believes what he posts or not, is post’n this mainly to poke fun at others.
But if you wanna be honest ‘bout it, I see the gubment as bigger “gougers” than any of the oil companies here. We could have gas back under $2/gal. tomorrow if the state and federal gubments cut the taxes they impose on it.

Did not expect it, think it is good, and it might give him a small boost in his popularity ratings.

And that right there is what this “probe” is all ‘bout.
It’s not like they’re actually gonna find any price gouge’n, at least not more than a local gas station level.

He is doing something about it, this just happens to be a temporary solution to give fast relief. The price gouging investigation will last months.

Would you rather be taxed another way? It's not like the different levels of government are swiming in extra cash.

Duck Dog and I agree again! 2x in the same month! (other was golf course wetlands).

Starting to get scary. Next thing you know, I'll be wearing some sort of hat with earflaps.

I'm OK with a TEMPORARY ease of environmental restrictions. If this is done without a major boost in alternative fuel research funding or a significant increase in fuel economy standards then it's just a TEMPORARY waste of time.

The price gouging investigation is also a TEMPORARY waste of time that will have the same results as every other investigation.

I think that most adults with at least average inteligence know what the problems are and TEMPORARY fixes aren't going to actually solve the problem.

Not say’n that, just point’n out where the real gouge’n is go’n on.

And don’t even get me started on the extra expense ‘cause of bullchit additives like MTBE. That stuffs “knee jerk junk science” at it’s worst.

If we are "addicted to oil" this is the equivalent of coke dealers easing up on the baby laxative.

I don't know much about the additives or the science behind them but from what I've seen it does sounds like we can do without certain one's. I also like the idea of having a standard formula for the entire country. This should reduce refining costs as well.
