|API: EPA Proposal a De Facto Ban on Gasoline-Powered Cars and Trucks
WASHINGTON, July 5, 2023 — The American Petroleum Institute (API) today urged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reverse course on its proposal for new tailpipe emissions standards for light-duty and medium-duty vehicles, which amount to a de facto ban on vehicles using gasoline and other liquid fuels that would drastically reduce American families’ freedom to choose a car or truck that best fits their needs and budget.
