Gov't Weighs Gas Mileage Rules for 2017 and Beyond

The administration is expected to give its view soon in the form of early planning for mileage standards for model years 2017-2025. Environmentalists are pushing for an average of at least 60 miles per gallon for new vehicles by 2025, exceeding the mileage of the most fuel-efficient hybrids on the road today. But automakers argue that pushing gas mileage standards up that quickly could force them to raise prices higher than drivers can afford.  There will be months of review and public comment before specific new standards are set.
