FUEL ECONOMY
(2007-01-31)
(wgvu) - A U-S SENATE COMMITTEE IS PUSHING AUTOMAKERS TO BUILD MORE FUEL-EFFICIENT VEHICLES.
THE ENERGY AND NATURAL RESOURCES COMMITTEE SAYS IT WOULD HELP THE INDUSTRY WEATHER THE IMPACT OF HIGHER GAS PRICES AND IMPROVE THEIR LONG-TERM FORTUNES.
GENERAL MOTORS, HONDA AND OTHER AUTOMAKERS SAY THE GOVERNMENT COULD HELP FOSTER ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES AND IMPROVEMENTS IN HYBRID BATTERIES.
THEY'RE CALLING FOR A MIX OF TAX INCENTIVES AND FUNDING FOR RESEARCH.
BUT SOME LAWMAKERS SAY THE INDUSTRY IS MAKING TOO MANY GAS-GUZZLING SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES.
