3 companies to pay $2.5M & conduct project for failing on Clean Air requirements.

(Washington, DC - May 4, 2011) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Justice Department today announced a settlement with Rocky Mountain Pipeline System, LLC, Western Convenience Stores, Inc., and Offen Petroleum, Inc. to resolve claims that they illegally mixed and distributed more than 1 million gallons of gasoline that did not meet Clean Air Act emissions and fuel quality requirements. The companies will pay a $2.5 million civil penalty and conduct an environmental project designed to offset the harm caused by their failure to meet federal gasoline quality requirements. Gasoline that does not meet Clean Air Act standards for fuel can result in increased emissions from car tailpipes, which can harm AmericansÂ’ health, affect vehicle performance, and in some cases can damage engines and emission controls.
