Fuel Efficiency Standards
(2007-06-15)
(wgvu) - Michigan Democratic senators Carl Levin and
Debbie Stabenow are part of a group of Washington lawmakers trying
to give automakers more time to reach new fuel efficiency
standards.
Their plan would require passenger cars to get at least 36 miles
per gallon by 20-22. Pickup trucks and S-U-Vs would have to get 30
miles per gallon by 20-25.
The U-S Senate is expected to vote next week on a separate plan
that would require cars to get 35 miles per gallon by 20-20.
Automakers oppose that plan, calling it too stringent. If passed
they say it will cost them billions of dollars and force them to
alter larger vehicle product lines.
