President Barry Obama is threatening to shut down oil refineries in Texas.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that, "Texas environmental advocates are applauding a new proposal to reduce oil refinery pollution by forcing operators to adopt new technology that better monitors and controls emissions. If adopted, the rule would mark the first change to the industry's emission standards in nearly two decades."
Americans are paying higher prices at the gas pump and closing down oil refineries could cause gas prices to soar.
According to the Houston Chronicle, "The 's 870-page proposal is part of a consent decree that resolved a lawsuit filed by nonprofit environmental attorneys with Earthjustice and the Environmental Integrity Project on behalf of people directly affected by emissions from refineries in Louisiana, Texas and California."
Oil refineries must pay for costly upgrades on emission filters or face the Obama Sanctions consequences.
