Pa. DEP Secretary Requests Gas Relief To Stop Shortage, Lower Prices

PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — Pittsburgh has a gas shortage due to supply issues with converting from winter to summer fuel, and it’s causing gas stations to run out of gas and raise the price in our region.

KDKA AM’s Larry and John talk to Secretary Michael Krancer, head of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, about how he has asked the Federal government to allow stations to continue using the old gas to fill in the gap. Is relief coming at the pump?

    1. Remember it was the Republicans who wanted to pull the plug on these EPA
    jerks during the last budget negotiations and the democrats resisted.
    2. This is another example of a Washington bureaucrat and an unelected official making a decision that costs you money.
    3. This is another example of government in Washington telling you what you can and can’t do.
    4. This boutique gas has got to go – oh it’s July and the temperature is above 85 degrees and the humidity is above 50% so you have to burn this type of gas but tomorrow, when the humidity drops below 50% you’ll have to burn another type of gas. This is government gone berserk. Every liberal nut gets a cause, somehow gets it written into law, and it costs you money.

    This isn’t liberal vs. democrat. Right wing and left wing both belong to the same corrupt diseased bird. Higher gas and food prices are a direct result of the Fed printing money and giving it to the banks to “loan out to small business”. But if you were a bank and got a freshly printed wad of cash would you loan it to a small business or buy commodities with it? The American people get the government and economy we deserve.
