Pump Up The Economy With Strong Fuel Efficiency Standards For Trucks

Pump Up the Economy with Fuel Efficient Trucks

Take Action

Tell the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation that you support strong fuel efficiency standards for trucks.

If commercial trucks increased their efficiency, the cost of delivering goods would be lower, freeing funds for other business expenses and saving money for consumers. According to the Consumer Federation of America, medium- and heavy-duty truck fuel indirectly cost each U.S. household $1,100 in 2010.

Next spring, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation are expected to propose new standards for fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions for medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Combined with existing standards, these rules could reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emission in this sector by 40 percent from 2010 levels by 2025.

These agencies need to hear that strong standards are important to you.

Higher fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emission standards save consumers and businesses money at the pump, lessen the economic and national security threats posed by dependence on foreign oil and price volatility, increase investment in research and development in clean technologies, and reduce harmful pollution.

Let EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx know: Strong fuel efficiency standards for trucks are a step in the right direction for America!
