EPA to keep strict gas mileage standards in place
The standards had required the fleet of new cars to average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy said in a statement that based on the agency's technical analysis, automakers can meet emissions standards and mileage requirements through 2025. The standards will increase the new-vehicle fleet's average gas mileage requirement from 34.1 mpg this year. That will dramatically cut carbon pollution and save US drivers billions in gas costs, the EPA said in a statement Wednesday.
