This just seems nuts to me. The White House announced that they're lowering the fuel economy standards for cars and trucks.

The rule calls for fuel economy and emission standards to increase by 1.5% annually, rather than the approximately 5% increases in the 2012 rule. According to the rule, the standards will increase to 40.4 miles per gallon by vehicle model year 2026, about 6 miles per gallon fewer than the 2012 rule.

This drives me nuts. the last thing we should be doing is letting cars become less fuel efficient. It's going to do more damage to the environment than any good the administration claims.

I agree! I was glad to see that Volvo decided to go along with California’s emission standards.

This is awesome news, well done Volvo. I wonder if other car companies are going to do the same thing despite the announcement.
