Stop Topping Off Your Tank to Save Yourselves

This is just asinine and an example of more government control over your lifestyles. New Oregon state regulations that go into effect on July 1st prevent owners of gasoline-powered vehicles from “topping off” their tanks. “Topping off” a vehicle’s gas tank can cause gasoline to spill and potentially release carcinogens, such as benzene, into the air. New emissions standards in the state hope to reduce benzene emissions by 28 tons per year. Gas station owners criticize the new rules, claiming sales will be hurt.

About the Author

has written 2022 stories on this site.

A social and fiscal conservative, I scour the news for information that disputes the current man-made global warming indoctrination that takes place around the world. I take a rather sarcastic approach to reporting on the nonsense being spewed by the talking heads in the media and the governments around the world.

    Al Gore very recently said that the northern polar ice cap will be completely gone in five years. To view the video, visit my site and click on the picture of Al Gore holding up five fingers.

    It seems like a rather risky prediction on his part. In five years, if it doesn’t happen, he’ll either have to admit he was wrong or take credit for saving the planet. Hmmmmmmmm, wonder which one he’ll do???
