Bush’s proposed new car mileage regulations are rife with loopholes and far less stringent than those already put forth by California – Not only will SUVs still get a free ride, so to speak, the savings estimates are based on gas prices of $1.50 per gallon and thus drastically understate the potential of regulations like those in California to decrease US oil consumption and cut down on the emission of greenhouse gases that cause global warming.
I think the Bush admistration should have adapted the California gas mileage law instead of creating a new one. If they did this, then SUV owners can real save a lot of money on gas. They can also help decrease the causes of global warming with less gas consumption.
