Alabama get clean gas waiver after Isaac

{} {} Alabama is one of eight states getting temporary waivers for clean gas requirements. {}It's because of the effects of Hurricane Isaac.{} {}{}Governors requested the waivers because fuel supplies in the Gulf area were disrupted by Isaac.{} {}{}The waiver lets gas stations sell less environmentally friendly fuel- which is normally reserved for winter- {}in addition to the regular fuel they normally sell during summer, when ozone levels are higher.{} {} The waivers were given to Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. {}A previous waiver issued last week only applied to Louisiana.{} {}{}Oil production is now returning to normal in the Gulf of Mexico. {}The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement says only 3.5 percent of Gulf oil platforms remain evacuated.
