California Avoids Gasoline Increase

Tuesday, August 6th

Ron Stein founder and ambassador for energy and infrastructure with PTS Advance (Principal Technical Services) came on the program to talk about a major victory for California residents in the fight against rising gasoline prices.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) rejected a South Bay ban on a common acid used in fuel refining that would have most likely resulted in closure of two refineries, according to the California Energy Commission (CEC) causing fuel prices to increase.

The SCAQMD voted 3-2 to support an industry-backed alternative plan rather than the proposed all-out ban.
