The only thing that I want is for CA to get rid of its requirement to use special gasoline. I have searched but have NEVER found any data that indicates any advantage to using the reformulated fuel. Yet, because it removes CA from the rest of the competition in the US for gasoline, it causes our fuel to to be dramatically more expensive. And more expensive means more gas tax, which means more revenue for the state budget.

Hopefully, when the EPA removes the waiver (and CARB fades away), we'll have some actual competition for gasoline in CA.
