New Fuel Efficiency Standards Announced

The Obama administration announced yesterday strict new vehicle fuel-efficiency standards, requiring that American made vehicles average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025.

The new rules are expected to significantly cut U.S. oil consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. And while that's great news for the wallets of those of us buying gas, auto dealers say you will pay more initially for a car in the future because of it. The Washington Post tells us how much more.
