In CA, the problem is supposedly a lack of refinery capacity combined with
recovering costs to build new refineries (or modify existing ones). The
laws changed regarding diesel fuel composition (requiring very low sulfur
and aromatic content; with relatively high cetane) which required
substantial process modifications. The mods are estimated to cost some $2
billion, just for CA.
Whether that applies to PA or not, I don't know. But I do seem to recall
hearing that some other states were following our lead.
