Economic Analysis of the Clean Fuel Standard

This webinar provides a briefing on the Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) currently under development in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, as well as the positive regional economic benefits that would stem from these standards. The CFS, which would require fuel providers to gradually reduce the carbon intensity of the fuel they sell, would reduce the region's dependence on oil, promote a clean fuels industry and reduce transportation greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, it is facing fierce opposition from the oil industry.
