Making America Great Again -- Revising/Freezing 2021 Fuel Efficiency Standards -- Reuters -- July 25, 2017

From Reuters:
The U.S. Transportation Department said on Tuesday it may revise auto fuel efficiency requirements starting with the 2021 model year, a year earlier than previously disclosed, and could adopt lower standards through 2025.
In March, President Donald Trump ordered a review of U.S. vehicle fuel-efficiency standards from model year 2022 through 2025 established under the Obama administration.
U.S. regulators said in a notice published Tuesday they are preparing a new environmental impact statement and could decide to freeze 2021 standards through 2025, rather than raising them every year.
Meanwhile, Britain and France will ban gasoline / diesel vehicles by 2040. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Americans will be driving bigger and bigger SUVs with lots of room for recreational equipment; Europeans will be driving electric golf carts. LOL.
