Gas Pump Labels in Berkeley

The Berkeley City Council will consider placing consumer information labels on gas pumps informing the public that consuming gasoline is a cause of global warming and that there are ways to reduce gas use.

This action is recommended by the City of Berkeley Energy Commission and Community Environmental Advisory Commission.  If approved by the City Council, the City Manager and City Attorney will draft an ordinance for final approval.  For details see the agenda item below.

We urge supporters to come to the hearing, although we can't be sure what time it will come up on the agenda.
