New Automotive Fuel Standards

Today the Federal Government and the automotive industry announced new fuel efficiency standards to be implemented by 2025. The new standard will be 54.5 mpg, if that makes sense in the coming era of alternative fuel cars.

The agreement includes 13 automakers including the Detroit big 3. Part of the deal allows automakers to sue if California "attempts to enact its own tougher rules, if the federal government opts to lower the requirements in the final years"
