The report reviews two EPA studies that investigated improvements in the allocation of state-level gasoline sales to the county level in order to improve annual county-level emissions estimates from the source category. The studies attempted to develop improved allocation procedures for estimating county-level gasoline sales using data for several states. The first study developed regression equations using county-level data to estimate county gasoline sales, while the second study analyzed proportional allocation methods using state- and county-level data to estimate county gasoline. Estimated county gasoline sales using the regression equations were generally closer to actual sales than gasoline sales predicted using the existing EPA approach.
