California Phase 2 Reformulated Gasoline is part of the California Air Resources Board's plan to reduce air pollution. CARB says that "cleaner-burning gasoline will provide one of the largest emission reductions in California's long fight against smog by reducing smog-forming emissions from motors vehicles by 15 percent. This is equivalent to removing 3.5 million cars from California's roads and freeways."

For information about California RFG supply and demand issues and about the Energy Commission's Internet web site, contact Commission Assistant Executive Director Claudia Chandler at 916-654-4989.
