NYACS Positions on Motor Fuel Retailing Legislative Issues

  • Oppose new state-level gas station cost mandates that exceed federal EPA standards, such as Stage I vapor recovery system testing.
  • Amend the anti-price gouging law to assign responsibility for declaring an "abnormal market disruption'' that triggers price controls.
  • Keep politicians out of retail gasoline pricing decisions.
  • Oppose placement of alternative fuel stations that are advertised as free but are actually subsidized by taxpayers or ratepayers.
