EPA proposes freezing fuel economy standards at 35 mpg until 2026
The agency says the proposal would save people money because automakers wouldn't need to introduce new emissions technology. Confirming a recent leak, the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed not to change average fleet fuel economy standards at their 2020 levels from 2021 through 2026. This means that automakers would need to maintain a fleet average of 35 miles per gallon, rather than achieving the previous proposal of reaching 50 mpg in 2025, according to Automotive News.
