Affordable Mobility: A Roadmap to Energy Efficiency

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2013

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Affordable transportation is an
essential part of the American economy. Most forms of transportation rely on
fuel consumption, and leading the conversation in keeping transportation costs
low, while creating economic sustainability, is fuel efficiency. However, some
economists say that new fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles sold in America
have costs of their own and will benefit the environment less than a straight
tax on gasoline, which leaders from both sides of the aisle have ruled out.
