My Way News - Bush Eases Environmental Rules on Gasoline

My Way News - Bush Eases Environmental Rules on Gasoline:
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush on Tuesday ordered a temporary suspension of environmental rules for gasoline, making it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly dampen prices at the pump. He also halted for the summer the purchase of crude oil for the government's emergency reserve.

[...]

Easing the environment rules will allow refiners greater flexibility in providing oil supplies since they will not have to use certain additives such as ethanol to meet clean air standards. The suspension of oil purchases for the federal emergency oil reserve is likely to have only modest impact since relative little extra oil will be involved.
And watch him leave that first part about environment rules in place after he starts buying the reserves again. There isn't an environmental protection BushCo wouldn't "ease" out of existence.
