I recently learned that consumer gas cans used to safely transport and store gasoline could soon be in short supply. This presents significant public safety concerns that merit your immediate attention.
We’ve been warned to expect a shortage of gas cans as early as late summer if action isn't taken to stabilize the business climate for the portable fuel gas container industry.
Without safe, portable fuel containers, consumers would be forced to resort to discarded containers to transport gasoline – going backwards 30 years in time in terms of safety. Access to safe, affordable containers has significantly reduced the number of accidents associated with home and recreational uses of gasoline - and it is particularly critical in times of emergency. I urge you to take action to prevent a break in the supply chain.
