The Road Ahead

Fact Sheet
September 09, 2010

This fact sheet looks at the potential for saving oil and cutting global warming pollution by raising fuel efficiency standards for both passenger vehicles and heavy-duty trucks. It is intended to provide an overview of the opportunities facing the Obama administration as it sets new standards for these vehicles. Specifically, it includes data on annual oil savings and greenhouse gas reduction in 2030 for both. The fact sheet was written by UCS and NRDC.
