Thanks for making that point. We do have clean fuels and emission limits for a reason. It's not just to stick it to the consumer. This is hard for people who don't live in smoggy places to understand. But just because your town doesn't look like L.A. doesn't mean you don't have air pollution. A recent EPA report showed that half of Americans live with unhealthy air quality every day. It's just not thick enough to see all the time like in L.A. or Atlanta or D.C.
