Auto Makers Pushing For A Rethink Of Fuel Economy Standards.

Auto Makers Pushing For A Rethink Of Fuel Economy Standards.

They worry that consumers will not like the changes meeting the new rules will require and that will hurt sales. The car industry is hugely important to the US economy. A decline in sales could have a ripple effect that would take some of the steam out of an economy that is just showing signs of life after the debacle of 2008.
