Bush suspending environmental rules

President Bush on Tuesday ordered a temporary suspension of environmental rules for gasoline, making it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly dampen prices at the pump.


Easing the environment rules will allow refiners greater flexibility in providing oil supplies since they will not have to use certain additives such as ethanol to meet clean air standards. (Associated Press)

Another example of Americans unwilling to make any kind of sacrifice or lessen their standard of living.

These laws or either good or they're not. If they're not, how about rescinding them permanently, Mr. Bush? Because the problem with rising oil prices is not going to go away. And if all it takes is a 30- or 40-cent rise in gasoline prices to make us roll back environmental regulations, are we in trouble.
