This paper attempts to delineate the areas of conflict between the 1970 Clean Air Amendments, which prescribe U.S. automobile emissions standards for 1975-76, and national fuels policy. Some of the important issues affecting the choice of technological options for meeting the 1975-76 standards are fuel lead content requirements, refinery capital investment, gasoline price increases, and foreign oil imports. All of these factors are interrelated, and are discussed in this paper in the overall context of emissions standards.
