Last week, Obama announced that by 2025, vehicles will have to average 54.5 mpg. By 2016, cars would need to average 34 mpg. Supposedly, vehicles currently average a fuel efficiency of 26 mpg, which surprises me given how many SUVs and trucks are on the road. My hybrid SUV only gets about 29 mpg and my former sedan averaged about 23. These new standards will save American drivers an estimated $1.7 trillion in fuel costs over the next 14 years. I’m excited to see what new and improved technologies will surface soon!
