Consumer groups oppose Gasoline for America’s Security Act

In the wake of sharply increasing gasoline prices, as well as supply disruptions triggered by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Congress will soon be voting on H.R. 3893, the “Gasoline for America’s Security Act.” The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) and Consumers Union strongly urge you to oppose this legislation because it fails to take the necessary steps to increase oil refining capacity and fuel conservation. The bill also proposes broad changes to the Clean Air Act that would undermine air quality and public health.
