New Mileage Standards September 25, 2009 : 11:22 AM

Last week the Obama administration proposed new rules that would increase the average fuel efficiency of cars and light trucks by 40%. I absolutely agree with the Alliance for Climate Protections’ CEO Maggie Fox, who stated:

"The historic proposed fuel standards announced today by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation will bring us leaps and bounds closer to repowering America and ending our dependence on foreign oil. The Obama Administration’s plans will mean cleaner, more efficient vehicles that emit less pollution, get American families savings at the pump, and promote even greater breakthroughs in clean transportation technology."
