Tell Congress: Support fuel efficiency, not gas guzzlers

    1. Sponsored by

      Consumers Union of United States

History shows gas prices will only continue to spiral – gobbling up our household and public budgets. And vehicle exhaust continues to be one of our nation’s major air pollutants.

That’s why developing more fuel-efficient vehicles is vital to getting our economy and our environment back on track. Right now, officials want to gradually increase fuel economy standards to 54.5 mpg over the next 13 years – a target some innovative cars on the market already meet.

Yet a contingent in Congress wants to derail these common-sense efforts, blocking higher fuel economy standards for vehicles built after 2016. That would effectively put strides in innovation in reverse!

Eight out of 10 consumers in our survey want these money-saving mileage standards. Tell your members of Congress to get on board with the rest of America, and support higher fuel efficiency for our vehicles.

      Saving thousands of dollars a year per car driver in America, and slashing greenhouse gases, etc. -- These sound like good reasons to me! If the technology is possible, then it needs to be implemented! Please sign this petition!

      I support the non-importation of oil from foreign nations and energy independence for the USA. I support highly fuel efficient vehicles and alternative energy vehicles. I want clean air, water, and a future for our children.

      Clean air, clean water, clean lungs -- all depend on reducing the use of gasoline. The sooner the better! And the savings in dollars is also most welcome.
