By Rebecca Smoot

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KFVS)- Missouri Senator Roy Blunt introduced the "Gas Accessibility and Stabilization" act today, which he says will help lower gas prices for Americans.

Blunt says the measure will improve the reliability, flexibility, and affordability of gas blends.

He says his proposal would help ensure that the nation has a more dependable fuel system by allowing for a reduction in the number of approved boutique fuels and permitting communities more flexibility in times of temporary shortage.
