EPA Fuel Economy Report Reveals that Auto Manufacturers Aren't Trying Hard Enough

A recent report from the Environmental Protection Agency shows that auto manufacturers aren't doing enough to increase the fuel economy of all their cars. While most manufacturers have continually improved on their most fuel efficient vehicles, they are still not incorporating this technology across all of their models.

New hybrids and small economy cars are getting very impressive mileage, but large SUV's and trucks are still being manufactured with pathetic fuel economy. "The EPA's new data shows that automakers are failing to help consumers deal with high gas prices by failing to put existing fuel-saving technology in most of their vehicles," said Dan Becker, Director of the Sierra Club’s Global Warming program.
