New regulations to be announced by the Environmental Protection Agency Friday are set to push the already-high price of gas up by a further 9¢ a gallon, petroleum industry experts are warning.

“There is a tsunami of federal regulations coming out of the EPA that could put upward pressure on gasoline prices. EPA’s proposed fuel regulations are the latest example,” Bob Greco, director of the American Petroleum Institute Downstream Group, told Newsmax. …

The EPA rule will force 49 states to follow regulations already in place in California that set stricter standards on gasoline’s sulfur content. Currently, states can have 30 parts of sulfur per million, but the new rules will lower it further to 10 parts. …

The tax hikes will never end with these lying thieves.

I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.

California pays about 60 cents a gallon more, NOT 9 cents!!!!

Shouldn’t I be able to “choose” whether or not I want to “help save da planet”? This is a crock.

They don’t, but we no longer have a GOP. They folded the tent, when Obama won again.All are hiding, and Obama is in for the kill.

Oh great, follow CA. Remember MTBE? Carcinogenic used in gas to keep the air clean.

You are correct, I was talking to a local small banker, they(regulators) are trying new and creative ways to to get more money. This is simply another tax which we all will pay in some form or another.

If the Pubbies give them any money in the next budget, they are basically worthless.

Spineless.

This rogue agency is totally out of control and needs to be shut down. Why the Congress will not defund it is beyond me.

Well, making gas more expensive will certainly jump start the economy. ( I hope I don’t need the /s tag)

Just heard this... Grabbed 15 5 gallon blitz gas cans threw them into the truck and heading down to the Rez station to fill ‘em up before the hike happens.

Thanks zero!

IT MEANS THAT THE 9 CENTS COST TO CONSUMERS IS A BARE-FACED LIE. Try 50-60 cents hike for us all.
