As mentioned on the Clark Howard Show:
Congress voted this week to raise the fuel efficiency for cars to 35 miles per gallon by the year 2020. That’s a 40 percent increase.
Democrats estimate the requirements will save motorists $700 to $1,000 in fuel costs.
The bill also requires increased ethanol use to 36 billion gallons per year by 2022 and increased production from non-corn sources such as switchgrass and wood chips.
