EPA Rejects CA, NY, and CT Oxygenate Petitions

June 21, 2005

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it will deny petitions made by the states of California, New York, and Connecticut to waive the oxygen content requirement for reformulated gasoline (RFG), according to the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA). In announcing the action, Assistant Administrator of Air Jeff Holmstead explained: “Congress has required the use of oxygenates as part of the clean fuels program and has made it clear that this requirement can only be waived if a state demonstrates that it prevents or interferes with the state’s ability to meet national air quality standards. California, New York, and Connecticut did not make this demonstration.”
