(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - Michigan's two U-S senators think automakers
should be required to take a different road toward increased fuel
economy standards.
Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow are trying to retool an
existing Senate plan branded unworkable by automakers.
Levin and Stabenow's alternative plan would give automakers more
time to improve vehicle fuel efficiency while seeking different
standards for passenger cars and trucks.
According to The Associated Press, the plan calls for standards
to increase to 36 miles per gallon for passenger cars by 2022.
Pickup trucks, S-U-Vs and vans would increase to 30 miles per
gallon by 2025.
