New Fuel-Efficiency Labels Announced with Details on Fuel Costs, Emissions

The U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today officially announced the new fuel-efficiency stickers. The new labels will provide more details, such as estimated annual fuel costs and information on the amount of greenhouse gas a vehicle emits. Left out of the new label was a controversial letter-grade system, which would have ranked cars on a scale of A through D based on their fuel economy and environmental impact. The labels will be required starting next year, with model year 2013 vehicles.
