EPA will tighten fuel mileage standards for cars and light trucks, replacing looser Trump-era standards

The Environmental Protection Agency on Monday will tighten fuel emissions standards for cars and light trucks to 40 miles per gallon by the 2026 model year, replacing the looser Trump-era standards. The new standards will save consumers money on fuel and prevent billions of tons of planet-warming carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.
The EPA said that by 2026, the requirements will be "the most ambitious greenhouse gas standards ever set for the light-duty vehicle sector in the US." "The final rule for light duty vehicles reflect core principles of this Administration: We followed the science, we listened to stakeholders, and we are setting robust and rigorous standards that will aggressively reduce the pollution that is harming people and our planet -- and save families money at the same time," EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan said in a statement.
