Trump and Gas Mileage


Environmentalists are beginning to point out that the Trump administration has accidentally released documents about lowering the gas mileage standards. Claiming that “they are making a bad decision in seeking ease to toughening fuel-economy rules.” The documents show disagreements between the nation's number one environmental regulator and some other environmental groups.

The administration is expected to roll back automobile gas mileage and pollution standards. Some environmental groups have predicted greenhouse gas emissions and gasoline consumption will increase if the gas standard becomes more relaxed.

Any change towards the gas mileage will set up a legal battle with California. About a dozen other states follow California’s mileage standards, and together they account for more than one-third of the vehicles sold in the United States. With these new standards proposed, the government predicts two-thirds of the new vehicles sold would be cars. They’ve also stated that by burning more gasoline, more people will be at risk.

The Trump administration has stated that people would drive more and be exposed to increased risk if their cars get better gas mileage. Transportation experts have discussed the arguments contained in a draft of the administration’s scenario prepared this summer.

Revisions to the mileage obligations for 2021 through 2026 are still being investigated.
