Record Fuel Efficiency for New Cars

Great news reported in USA Today’s DriveOn: New cars in this country boast unprecedented fuel efficiency. Average miles per gallon has inched up 1.1 mpg to 23.8 mpg since this time last year, according to the report, citing a Detroit area market research firm.

The Natural Resources Defense Council also took notice. The article quotes NRDC vehicle analyst Luke Tonachel saying the standards are “exceeding our expectations. These standards are doing exactly what they should.”

Great news for the industry and our country. Let’s keep up the momentum.
