In an effort to address air toxic emissions from gas service stations, Pennsylvania Department of the Environment, AAA, local environmental organizations, Pennsylvania gas station and petroleum associations, and local fuel suppliers. The goal of this coalition is 1) to develop and distribute educational and outreach material about Stage II vapor recovery requirements to gasoline station owners and operators and 2) to develop and provide outreach and educational material to the public about how they can prevent the release of gasoline vapors when pumping gas.
