A plan released by the Trump Administration this week will abandon achievable and common-sense vehicle standards by 2026. And it will do so at our expense. The plan as proposed will limit you to less efficient vehicles, cost you more at the pump, and allow millions more tons of pollutants to be emitted into the air.
Many of us tend to think about the miles per gallon (MPG) our vehicles get only when gas prices are high, or when choosing which vehicle to buy. After all, what does individual mileage really matter with over 260 million vehicles on American roads? But our national average MPG and the standards behind it are important for what we breathe and experience each and every time we go outside. It’s time to consider what it means to be part of the whole.
What’s being proposed by the Trump Administration?
What would keeping the stronger standards in place achieve?
Fighting for the current standards to stay in place is a no-brainer when it comes to preserving the environment, our health, and our pocketbooks. All three are at stake in this dangerous plan, and we need to push back hard.
