SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Fuel Rating Rule, 16 CFR part 306 (OMB Control Number: 3084–0068), establishes standard procedures for determining, certifying, and disclosing SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the octane rating of automotive gasoline and the automotive fuel rating of alternative liquid automotive fuels, as required by the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act. 15 U.S.C. 2822(a)1(c). The Rule also requires refiners, producers, importers, distributors, and retailers to retain records showing how the ratings were determined, including delivery tickets or letters of certification. Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ means agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 44 U.S.C. 3502(3); 5 CFR 1320.3(c). As required by section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the FTC is providing this opportunity for public comment before requesting that OMB extend the existing paperwork clearance for the regulations noted herein. Pursuant to Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the FTC invites comments on: (1) Whether the disclosure and recordkeeping requirements are necessary, including whether the information will be practically useful; (2) the accuracy of our burden estimates, including whether the methodology and assumptions used are valid; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information. All comments should be filed as prescribed in the ADDRESSES section above, and must be received on or before May 12, 2014. Estimated annual hours burden 1 33,700 total burden hours (13,750 recordkeeping hours + 19,950 disclosure hours). 1 Under the Fuel Rating Rule, refiners, producers, importers, distributors, and retailers of automotive fuel must retain, for one year, records of any delivery tickets, letters of certification, or tests upon which they based the automotive fuel ratings that they certify or post. See the Fuel Rating Rule’s recordkeeping requirements, 16 CFR 306.7; 306.9; and 306.11. The term automotive fuel includes gasoline and alternative liquid automotive fuels. 16 CFR 306.0 (i). Therefore, staff derived the number of fuel industry members by adding up the number of refiners, producers, importers, distributors, and retailers of these types of fuel. Staff consulted government agencies and industry sources in estimating a population of approximately 165,000 fuel industry members, including 159,597 retailers of automotive fuel. Some of the government Web sites reviewed to update these numbers include: http://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/pet_pnp_cap1_dcu_ nus_a.htm (Gasoline Producers); http://www.eia. gov/petroleum/ethanolcapacity/ (Ethanol Producers); http://www.eia.gov/biofuels/biodiesel/ production/ (Biodiesel Producers); http://www.afdc. energy.gov/fuels/ (Alternative Fuel Stations); http://www.nacsonline.com/YourBusiness/Fuels Reports/GasPrices_2014/Documents/2014NACS FuelsReport_full.pdf (Petroleum Stations).

Disclosure: Staff estimates that affected industry members incur an average burden of approximately one hour to produce, distribute, and post octane rating labels. Because the labels are durable, only about one of every eight industry member retailers (19,950 of 159,597 industry member retailers) incur this burden each year, resulting in a total annual burden of 19,950 hours. Estimated annual labor costs: $364,207. Labor costs are derived by applying appropriate hourly cost figures to the burden hours described above. Here, the average hourly wages of producers, distributors, and importers is $30.56.3 The average hourly wages of retailers is $10.54.4 The recordkeeping component is approximately 450 hours for producers, distributors, and importers and 13,300 hours for retailers. Thus, the total recordkeeping component has a combined annual labor cost of $153,934 ((450 hours × $30.56) + (13,300 hours × $10.54)). The disclosure component is approximately 19,950 hours for retailers, therefore, the total disclosure 2 Under the Fuel Rating Rule, refiners, producers, importers, distributors, and retailers of automotive fuel must retain, for one year, records of any delivery tickets, letters of certification, or tests upon which they based the automotive fuel ratings that they certify or post.

Staff believes that the Rule does not impose any capital costs for producers, importers, or distributors of fuels. Retailers, however, incur the cost of procuring and replacing fuel dispenser labels to comply with the Rule. Staff conservatively estimates that the price per automotive fuel label is two dollars and that the average automotive fuel retailer has six dispensers.5 In addition, staff has previously estimated the useful life of dispenser labels to range from 6 to 10 years. Applying 8 years, the mean of that range, and distributing the costs on a per-year basis, staff estimates the total annual replacement labeling cost to be $39,899 (159,597 retailers × 1/8 × $2.00).

Comment Request; Extension

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission (``Commission'' or ``FTC'').

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FTC is seeking public comments on its proposal to extend 
through May 31, 2017, the current Paperwork Reduction Act (``PRA'') 
clearance for information collection requirements contained in the Fuel 
Rating Rule (``Rule''), which will expire on May 31, 2014. DATES: 
Comments must be filed by May 12, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Interested parties may submit written comments 
electronically or in paper form by following the instructions in the 
Request for Comment part of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section 
below. Write ``Fuel Rating Rule PRA Comment, FTC File No. P144200 on 
your comment and file your comment online at https://ftcpublic.commentworks.com/ftc/fuelratingpra by following the 
instructions on the web-based form. If you prefer to file your comment 
on paper, mail or deliver your comment to the following address: 
Federal Trade Commission, Office of the Secretary, Room H-113, 600 
Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20580, in the manner detailed 
in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or 
copies of the proposed information requirements should be addressed to 
Miriam Lederer, Attorney, Division of Enforcement, Federal Trade 
Commission, Room M-8102B, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 
20580, (202) 326-2975.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Fuel Rating Rule, 16 CFR part 306 (OMB 
Control Number: 3084-0068), establishes standard procedures for 
determining, certifying, and disclosing the octane rating of automotive 
gasoline and the automotive fuel rating of alternative liquid 
automotive fuels, as required by the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act. 
15 U.S.C. 2822(a)\1\(c). The Rule also requires refiners, producers, 
importers, distributors, and retailers to retain records showing how 
the ratings were determined, including delivery tickets or letters of 
certification.
    Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521, federal agencies must obtain 
approval from OMB for each collection of information they conduct or 
sponsor. ``Collection of information'' means agency requests or 
requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, 
or provide information to a third party. 44 U.S.C. 3502(3); 5 CFR 
1320.3(c). As required by section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the FTC is 
providing this opportunity for public comment before requesting that 
OMB extend the existing paperwork clearance for the regulations noted 
herein.
    Pursuant to Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the FTC invites 
comments on: (1) Whether the disclosure and recordkeeping requirements 
are necessary, including whether the information will be practically 
useful; (2) the accuracy of our burden estimates, including whether the 
methodology and assumptions used are valid; (3) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 
(4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information. All 
comments should be filed as prescribed in the ADDRESSES section above, 
and must be received on or before May 12, 2014.

    \1\ Under the Fuel Rating Rule, refiners, producers, importers, 
distributors, and retailers of automotive fuel must retain, for one 
year, records of any delivery tickets, letters of certification, or 
tests upon which they based the automotive fuel ratings that they 
certify or post. See the Fuel Rating Rule's recordkeeping 
requirements, 16 CFR 306.7; 306.9; and 306.11. The term automotive 
fuel includes gasoline and alternative liquid automotive fuels. 16 
CFR 306.0 (i). Therefore, staff derived the number of fuel industry 
members by adding up the number of refiners, producers, importers, 
distributors, and retailers of these types of fuel. Staff consulted 
government agencies and industry sources in estimating a population 
of approximately 165,000 fuel industry members, including 159,597 
retailers of automotive fuel. Some of the government Web sites 
reviewed to update these numbers include: http://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/pet_pnp_cap1_dcu_nus_a.htm (Gasoline Producers); http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/ethanolcapacity/ (Ethanol Producers); http://www.eia.gov/biofuels/biodiesel/production/ (Biodiesel Producers);

    Recordkeeping: Based on industry sources, staff estimates that 
165,000 fuel industry members each incur an average annual burden of 
approximately five minutes to ensure retention of relevant business 
records for the period required by the Rule,\2\ resulting in a total of 
13,750 hours.

    Disclosure: Staff estimates that affected industry members incur an

one of every eight industry member retailers (19,950 of 159,597 
industry member retailers) incur this burden each year, resulting in a 
total annual burden of 19,950 hours.
    Estimated annual labor costs: $364,207.
    Labor costs are derived by applying appropriate hourly cost figures 
to the burden hours described above. Here, the average hourly wages of 
producers, distributors, and importers is $30.56.\3\ The average hourly 
wages of retailers is $10.54.\4\ The recordkeeping component is 
approximately 450 hours for producers, distributors, and importers and 
13,300 hours for retailers. Thus, the total recordkeeping component has 
a combined annual labor cost of $153,934 ((450 hours x $30.56) + 
(13,300 hours x $10.54)). The disclosure component is approximately 
19,950 hours for retailers, therefore, the total disclosure component 
has an annual labor cost of $210,273.

    Estimated annual non-labor costs: $39,000.
    Staff believes that the Rule does not impose any capital costs for 
producers, importers, or distributors of fuels. Retailers, however, 
incur the cost of procuring and replacing fuel dispenser labels to 
comply with the Rule. Staff conservatively estimates that the price per 
automotive fuel label is two dollars and that the average automotive 
fuel retailer has six dispensers.\5\ In addition, staff has previously 
estimated the useful life of dispenser labels to range from 6 to 10 
years. Applying 8 years, the mean of that range, and distributing the 
costs on a per-year basis, staff estimates the total annual replacement 
labeling cost to be $39,899 (159,597 retailers x 1/8 x $2.00).
