There’s 330 million or realistically probably more people in the country. Assuming only 10 percent of them own gas tools that’s 33 million. That’s only half a gallon of spillage per person. I could believe that.

"Just as powerful.....?" Huge logging industry in Washington state depends on large gas power saws.

Before EPA mandated gas cans, there were probably only 5 gallons of fuel spilled nationally.

Yes but there's only 7 million people in washington state where this is being proposed. It's not very clear in the article that it's the state not federal. 17 million gallons spilled annually in washington state sounds like a lot and could well be an exaggeration.

The California politicians who pushed CARB into banning sales of gas OPE used some inflated numbers to justify it. And CARB's done the same thing in the past for other emissions restrictions like on two stroke off road motorcycles.

Government creates a problem by making gas cans just about impossible to use without spilling, then uses that problem to create more regulations.

If they really cared about the planet, they would allow the production of oil in the US instead of shipping it from Iran, Russia, Venezuela and a dozen other countries around the world in leaking oil tankers that burn millions of gallons of diesel!!!

We are importing oil from other countries because of Government restrictions that have artificially driven up the cost of oil. Iran and Russia need oil to be over $80 a barrel to be profitable. If it's less then that, then they cannot afford their wars. The oil industry makes massive profits when oil production is restricted in the US. The only reason we're paying so much for gasoline at the pump is because the Government is causing it to be harder to get in the US.
