CFA Submits Comments to EPA Regarding Possible Reconsideration of the 2022-2025 Model Year Gas Emission Standards

In comments filed with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), CFA strongly urged the agency to let the fuel economy standards for Model Year 2022-2025 stand, and to not revisit Model Year 2021 standards. The filing is in response to EPA’s possible reconsideration of the 2022-2025 model year gas emission standards. It draws upon and builds on CFA’s longstanding involvement and expertise on the issue. CFA stated that increasing federal fuel economy standards for cars and light duty trucks to 42 MPG by 2025 is supported by 79 percent of Americans, and that the benefits of fuel economy regulations are worth over eight times their cost.
