The most massive fuel transition ever attempted in the United States has been occurring quite smoothly over the past few years without so much as a hiccup. It is the slow and steady movement from Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel to Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel that started in 2006 and will continue through 2014.

The U.S. Senate has until next week to use the Congressional Review Act to repeal the Bureau of Land Management’s flawed “venting and flaring” rule, which could put at risk energy production and important progress on reducing emissions.
