Comprehensive guide to the EPA's new pollution-reducing gasoline rules
The Environmental Protection Agency on Monday finalized major new regulations that it says will create a cleaner environment, improve public health, and help flight climate change — all by requiring oil refiners to put less sulfur in American gasoline.
