Obama Administration Wants 56 MPG Standard by 2025


The Obama administration will formally propose new fuel efficiency standards in September, but recent meetings with domestic automakers reveal that the levitra pharmacy compare cost administration is follow link female levitra pills gunning for a 56.2 mpg standard for cars and www.animationnation.com light trucks by 2025.

I'm impressed by people like Mike Reynolds, the father of the earthship. He himself lives in an earthship and built his own. I think most people will agree we need more people like him, and reduce the voice of people who call for austerity for the general public, but live another lifestyle.

"We choose to go to the 100 mg cialis moon in this decade and do how to get cialis the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard"
- Remember that ? That was a race which in less than 10 years went from an advanced version of try it ordering levitra overnight delivery a V2 missile, to a Saturn V which travelled to http://thegracedarlinghotel.com.au/levitra-discussionsdiscount-priced-levitra the moon and back...

And now you're like
'We're going to double the efficiency of our lousy-to-begin-with cars in some, eh, 13, 14 years'
?

GM produced an electric car in the nineties. Volkswagen had, a little too optimistically considered, zero polution, concept when they were introducing the new Beetle. 20 years later, TWO DECADES, later, the only people still driving electric cars are a-list celebrities and what is the cost of viagra very rich folks who consider them cute or think they're doing their part for the environment buying them...next to the rest of their not-entirely-asphalt-bound fleet.

Seriously America, you have so many intelligent young people, and so many unemployed, you could step on it a little harder, change the entire gameplan, by the end of this decade. And I don't mean just cutting down a bit on your gigantic and inefficient engines.

Really Eric?

Hey Eric, hope you don't want to eat or buy anything at a store any more. Guess what- groceries, fuel, products, and services require fuel so all of those costs would go up proportionately with your brilliant thought. So not only would your car's fuel go up by 100%, but your groceries would cost a lot more, that ipod you want to buy would cost more, you'd be paying more for that checkout clerk to i use it viagra australia show up at work, you'd be paying more to take the bus to the store (if you choose not to drive), you'd pay more to go to a resturant or movie, etc. Non-starter.

Been there done that.....

Eric (and others who think the answer is so simple), the price of fuel in the U.S. more than doubled in a very short time span during the Bush years. Instead of magically fixing both our dependence on oil & our health care system, it crashed our economy and put millions out of levitra roma work.

The concept of Americans walking or biking the majority of places they go is great in concept, but often difficult to practice due to a lack of infrastructure. The road systems in most cities do not lend themselves readily to bike & pedestrian traffic. We have to fda approves cialis make the commitment to invest in our infrastructure and make it happen - hard to do in a tough economy.

A Renault van that gets 50 mpg? Interesting. If it's that efficient, why hasn't other auto makers copied the canada viagra generic technology rather than invest in the manufacture of hybrids?

At the risk of sounding cynical, it's cheaper to steal current technology rather than develop new technology.

The Renault Kangoo is great, just like the tons of other small diesel vehicles built in Europe. Hey Vicki, I don't really think you can blame the recession on the price of gas. Remember that thing called the sub-prime mortgage crisis?
I think fuel is too cheap in the US and that a hefty tax on consumer gasoline would be great for the country. Let commercial transport alone, but do something to steer the SUV crowd into something more efficient.

not impressed
written by Wouter, July 13, 2011
Well.. that's possible with current technologies:
56.2mpg = 23.9 km/l

There are many diesel engined cars that can do this already; even up to 30km/l (70 mpg) for a Fiat Punto.
There are even some gasoline engined cars that hit the 23.9 km/l.
If you add a small electric support engine to current cars; it will pass this mark.

So setting this as norm for over 14 years is not very ambitious.
