Federal judge blocks Calif. low-carbon fuels rule


It appears we have a judge with some common sense who even knows about the Constitution.

U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence O’Neill ruled Thursday that the rules violated a commerce clause by discriminating against crude oil and biofuels producers located outside California.

California already has overpriced gasoline due to regulations stipulating how it’s made, not to mention different formulas for summer and winter. All this does is drive the price of gas up because no one else is going to bother making it unless they have a refinery in California.

Have a refinery down for maintenance or a refinery fire and the price almost always goes up due to the laws of supply and demand that are continually ignored by CARB and elected officials in favor of some special unicorn magic that will save us all from ourselves.

We’d like to see this ruling applied to all gas in California. Then perhaps some competition will lower the prices to a more reasonable level.

The only people you ask are those whith a proven track record of lying and people who know nothing of what they are talking about. You arrogant twits.You don’t know the first thing about what you claim. You just repeat nonsensical propagada without any ablity to judge its truth.
