@"The lawsuit also alleges that the defendants improperly handled and disposed of hazardous wastes and materials associated with the underground storage tanks at retail gas stations throughout the state.

A statewide investigation found violations of hazardous materials and hazardous waste laws and regulations at gas stations in 37 counties across the state, and at 28 gas stations located in Alameda County."

Put the Dems in charge and look what happens. Nanny State putting its regulatory mitts all over us. Give me cheaper gas! Let others breathe the fumes!
