US EPA approves clean gasoline waiver for Georgia

24 09 2008

WASHINGTON, Sept 23 (Reuters) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said on Tuesday it waived federal clean air regulations for gasoline sold in 45 counties in and around Atlanta, Georgia because of fuel disruptions caused by hurricanes Ike and Gustav.


“Today’s waiver will allow greater flexibility for the fuel distribution system to support an adequate supply of gasoline,” the agency said.


Georgia’s waiver lasts through Oct. 12. (Reporting by Ayesha Rascoe, editing by Richard Chang)
