Apparently, the president has elected to allow oil refineries to bypass certain environmental regulations that control how cleanly said gasoline burns. He says this is to make it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly, I repeat possibly, lower the prices at the stations. How much do you want to bet that prices don't lower and the only result is an increase in pollution and negative effects to the environment?

My apologies to my lungs as I bicycle commute my way around the streets. How do I fight this? A possibility of temporary financial relief is hardly an acceptable cause for near irreversible damage to the environment. And we all know that once they raise petrol prices, they never are reduced more than a few cents for a little while.
