Congress, regulators, and industry should collaborate to enhance energy product reliability programs and regulations at existing agencies, rather than complicating matters through the creation of a new, duplicative reliability regulator.

So much for the Biden administration being concerned about rising energy costs. This proposal would needlessly increase already record-breaking RFS compliance costs which, in turn, will raise the cost of producing gasoline and diesel for U.S. consumers—and it would do so with no corresponding environmental benefit or increase in biofuel blending.
Limiting California’s access to the exact types of crude oil its facilities need will only increase prices for the state’s consumers and travelers. Drivers are already dealing with gasoline prices in excess of $5 per gallon and the highest fuel taxes of the 50 states. Confining energy producers and consumers to a smaller pool of crude oil will make a very sensitive price environment that much worse.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This is a commonsense administration decision. We’re still waiting for EPA to make a call on 2019 and 2020 relief petitions and there remains no 2021 or 2022 proposals, much less final rules, from the Agency to guide business decisions for refineries. We all know RIN scarcity is real and clarity about future obligations is needed in order for facilities to align around their individual compliance strategies.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – "Federal policy is discouraging supply by shutting down pipelines, putting future production off limits, talking down the future of the petroleum business, and imposing expensive requirements on refineries, chief among them a burdensome Renewable Fuel Standard. The Administration is blaming others when it ought to take a sober look at its own energy policy."
Fuel Refiners, Petrochemical Manufacturers Urge Congressional Democrats to Stand Strong, Reject New Taxes on American-Refined Energy, Plastics
Washington, D.C. – AFPM launches seven-figure campaign thanking Democrat champions, warning that reconciliation taxes could lead to higher prices on gas and consumer goods, threaten jobs and undermine U.S. energy security.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – AFPM supports the drive to make the transportation fleet more efficient and sees our industries as integral in that process. CAFE standards must be achievable, affordable for drivers, reflective of consumer preferences, and consistent across the United States.
A new campaign from the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) spotlights the surging costs and unprecedented impact of biofuel mandates on U.S. refineries and the need for immediate action to get RFS costs under control.
