New Gas Stations Targeted By Local Activists
Last week, the City of Petaluma in California voted to ban new gas stations– in this case a Safeway Supermarket– and current stations will not be allowed to add new pumps. according to a story by Axios.
Behind the effort to ban new gas stations is an environmental group called Stand.earth which ran a campaign called SAFE (stand against fossil fuel expansion).
“The problem with allowing new gas stations is we don’t really need them and they’re putting existing gas stations out of business,” said Matt Krogh, who heads Stand.earth.
