Yes. If a refinery opts to meet per gallon standards instead of averaging, ratcheted standards do not apply to that refinery even if the refinery had supplied averaged gasoline to the ratcheted area the previous year. Ratcheted standards apply only to averaged gasoline.(7/1/94)

If a refinery supplies averaged gasoline to an area which fails a survey, can the refinery during the following year opt to meet per gallon standards and thus avoid the ratcheted standards which would have been applicable to its averaged gasoline?
