Spotlight: Chevron Wins Round in S.F. Fuel Fight

Chevron Corp., seller of most of the gasoline purchased in the San Francisco area, won a round in its bid to kill a proposal designed to cut the city's fuel prices. The proposal before the city's Board of Supervisors would have allowed service station owners more freedom to shop around for gasoline, a bid to cut pump prices that are 15 to 20 cents higher than in other parts of California. The board voted 8 to 2 to send the proposal back to committee. A supporter of the ordinance said the vote makes passage unlikely.
