Learn more about Fuel Efficiency
In President Obama's January 28th State of The Union address he announced that he would issue an executive order to double the average fuel efficiency of cars and trucks by 2025. By raising the standards administration officials estimate that Americans will reduce their annual consumption of oil by 12 billion barrels and save them $1.7 trillion in fuel costs. Opponents say that automakers will have to absorb enormous costs to make their cars and trucks meet the standards and consumers will ultimately bear the cost due to the higher retail prices of new automobiles. Thirteen major automakers have spoken in support of the rule which will be subject to a cost review in 2020. If automakers are not yet near the standards at that time the mileage could be reduced to match their capabilities. See recent fuel efficiency news
