The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed two new rules setting more ambitious vehicle emissions standards for passenger vehicles and trucks. In announcing the proposal on April 12, officials said that, if implemented, the new regulations would avert about 10 billion tons of CO2 emissions, save owners $12,000 compared with costs of vehicles that
do not adhere to the new proposed requirements and reduce U.S. use of about 20 billion gallons of imported oil.
