However, it does not significantly increase motor vehicle fuel economy standards or increase the availability of alternative fuels to use in our vehicles.
To increase energy independence and stop global warming, we need more efficient vehicles and cleaner fuels. The House should adopt a provision setting a mileage standard of 35 miles per gallon by 2020. This would save 1.2 million barrels of oil per day in 2020, and save consumers at least $25 billion. Another needed reform would require a certain portion of service stations to sell flexible fuel alternatives to replace oil based gasoline.
Without such measures, the U.S. will continue to consume vast quantities of oil and generate global warming pollution.
Tell Congress to improve vehicle fuel economy and make flexible fuels more available to consumers. Tell Congress: Clean My Ride and Flex My Fuel!
