Governing the Gasoline Spigot: Gas Stations and the Transition Away From Gasoline
America’s 130,000 gas stations are the country’s largest carbon spigot, bringing fossil fuels into our neighborhoods and communities, which can pollute the air, the water, and the land. Now, four emerging trends – the climate crisis, the rise of electric vehicles, the aging of underground storage tanks, and new research establishing the dangers of gas station pollution – are bringing gas stations to a crossroads.
Join the Environmental Law Institute, Coltura, and expert panelists to explore cutting-edge research examining gas stations through the lens of the climate crisis and the rise of electric vehicles. Panelists will review leading policy proposals that empower states and local governments to regulate gas stations to advance their climate goals, reduce pollution of air, soil, and groundwater, improve public health, and save taxpayers money.
