Kentucky Gets EPA Waiver On Reformulated Gasoline

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear says the Environmental Protection Agency has granted Kentucky a temporary waiver from reformulated gasoline in some counties.

The counties of Boone, Campbell, Jefferson and Kenton, along with portions of Bullitt and Oldham counties, are covered by the waiver from now through the end of September.

Beshear asked for the waiver on Monday, claiming that recent hurricanes have caused an unusual fuel supply. Conditions have weakened the supply of reformulated gasoline in these areas.

The waiver allows the sale of conventional gas in the counties. Three bordering states of Virginia, Ohio and Tennessee have similar waivers.

    How about mixing the gas with ethenol like they do in Missouri? They have the cheapest gas in the country. 80% gas 20% ethenol.

    I say the answer is lets see the fine raised to $50.000 for price gouging, give the money back to the consumer and this will solve the problem.
