The article presents information on the Energy Policy Act of 2005, passed by U.S. President George W. Bush. The Act is expected to have a profound effect on petroleum marketers for years to come. Washington D.C. based Petroleum Transportation & Storage Association suggests that within the next two years the EPA must establish working guidelines for gas station employees responsible for the operation and maintenance of underground storage tanks (UST). Additionally, as no deliveries can be made in 24 states if it fails to comply with state UST regulations, all remaining states must adopt such a program within two years.
