Maybe Charles T. Drevna, the president of American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers — who blamed high gas prices on government regulation — didn't live in L.A. when the air quality was so poor that the mountains were hidden from view. I remember; the smog was so bad I would come inside after playing with my lungs hurting.
Finally, because of better emissions standards, our air is cleaner, public health is improved and we can see our gorgeous mountains again. The price is worth it.
