Now, just as people are looking at gas prices before they get on the road, we’re having a debate in Washington, D.C. about whether to continue America’s strong fuel economy and greenhouse gas reduction standards for cars, SUVs, and trucks. Thanks to those standards, millions of Americans who driving bigger vehicles—families taking their kids to the beach, contractors hauling equipment, farmers heading out to the fields—will be saving big at the pump.
All too frequently the impressive improvements in pickup trucks and SUVs are left out of the story of our nation’s leading fuel economy standards, and opponents of these common sense standards falsely imply that the only way we can get to a clean economy is by driving small cars. What is at stake isn’t the size of your vehicle; it’s whether America will remain a leader in the innovations inside of it.
