(2007-05-04)
(wgvu) - - MICHIGAN'S DEMOCRATIC U-S SENATORS SAY THAT
THE NATION'S FUEL ECONOMY RULES ARE OUT OF DATE BUT U-S CARMAKERS
SHOULDN'T BE UNDULY PENALIZED IN RAISING MILEAGE STANDARDS.

CONSIDERING PROPOSALS TO RAISE MILEAGE REQUIREMENTS.
DEBBIE STABENOW SAYS AUTOMAKERS CAN INCREASE FUEL EFFICIENCY
THROUGH PLUG-IN HYBRIDS, BETTER BATTERIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES.
CARL LEVIN SAYS CURRENT FUEL ECONOMY RULES DISADVANTAGE U-S
AUTOMAKERS BECAUSE OF THE MIX OF CARS AND TRUCKS THAT THEY SELL.
CALIFORNIA DEMOCRAT DIANNE FEINSTEIN SAYS BETTER GAS MILEAGE IS
VITAL IN FIGHTING GLOBAL WARMING AND DEPENDENCE ON IMPORTED OIL.
