Ozone monitoring will return to eight counties in Southeast Michigan as extra measures are implemented to lower smog levels in the area. Effective Saturday, June 1, St. Clair along with seven other counties must only sell or dispense gas that does not exceed 7.0 pounds per square inch vapor pressure. The summer gasoline program was introduced in 1996, due to monitored violations of the National Ambient Air Quality for ozone, as outlined in the EPA’s Clean Air Act, in the Detroit area. By enforcing this act it ensures Michigan continues to receive federal highway funding dollars. Anyone who suspects problems at the pump is encouraged to call the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development’s 24-hour hotline for reporting complaints at 1-800-MDA-FUEL.
