Snips from Excerpt Only Website: Senators from both sides of the aisle are warning that looming EPA regulations on gasoline could impose billions of dollars in additional costs on the industry and end up adding up to 25 cents to every gallon of gas.
Citing the nearly $3.40-a-gallon average price of gas and the state of the economy, the senators said "now is not the time for new regulations that will raise the price of fuel even further."

I’d like to pee on the corpse of the EPA. Kill this waste of taxpayer’s money.
This agency (among several others) needs to be defunded by the incoming presidency (the one that will hopefully undo much of the damage this administration has been heaping upon us on a daily basis).
Easy access to energy greatly facilitates a life of freedom. They want that stopped.
Amen. And force bambi to attend the funeral and dig the hole to bury it himself.
Yep. As with everything else this administration does, the harm here is intentional.
Never mind annual cost of gas per family of four, this needs to be described in jobs lost nation wide. Remember Obama’s promise of energy costs necessarily rising.
Local company (small town)is eliminating 50 jobs due to diesel price increase.
The EPA and their rules is why diesel is 50 cents a gallon more than regular. That rule alone costs diesel users billion every year.
Which is why I still support Perry over the other “conservatives”.
He has flatly stated that he would reign in the EPA.
The others say very little or nothing regards these sort of issues.
I do not want to see another “Conservative” president who is so avoiding of controversy or offending the “Green” (Red) charlatans that they will not make a sincere effort to repeal the garbage that has already been foisted on us.
It’s time to begin repealing laws and “Authority” of these rogue agencies, not “Reaching across the isle” and enabling more of the same!
This is way too funny, congress is complaining about this yet it is CONGRESS that granted the EPA these powers.
Everyone in the US Congress are crooks, both republicans and democrats.
Exactly. all part of the messiah’s plan to destroy American life as we know it.
Gas prices to go up. Electric prices to go up. Food prices to go up. Value of the dollar to go down.
Who don’t know dat.
I wondered how that came about. I remember in the ‘80s and ‘90s how so many diesel vehicles were sold because they would be more economical due to lower diesel prices. It really hits the working man too because so many diesel vehicles are work trucks.
The downside to that is they can’t hear you laughing.
God help us if nobama retains the White House next year.
