GAO discussed the results of its survey of states and U.S. territories regarding their gasoline-pump labelling requirements and the need for a uniform federal gasoline ingredient label. GAO noted that: (1) 39 states required gasoline pump labels disclosing at least the gasoline alcohol content; (2) most of these states required such labels for consumer protection; (3) 22 of these 39 states were satisfied with their requirements and did not perceive a need for a uniform federal label; (4) 24 states favored a uniform federal label, while 13 states opposed a labelling requirement; and (5) states' label content requirements varied.
