Confronted with shortages of low-sulfur content residual fuel oil, several air-pollution-control authorities in the northeastern states were forced to relax air-quality standards during the winters of 1972-73 and 1973-74. the authorities did so by granting variances to their sulfur-content standards for residual fuel oil. The characteristics of these variances provide the social test-tube for this analysis. The report examines alternative policies such as direct regulation, fuel-oil surcharges, emission taxes and quantity control.
