Good to have goals. Like setting goals for cutting pollution made by vehicles. The manufacturers stepped up to the challenge.

It's kind of a funny spin when they mention that no one is eager to buy a car with worse gas mileage and spews more pollution. That's exactly what people are doing when they get rid of their cars and buy SUVs and trucks which now outsells cars. In reality, no one is probably eager to buy a new car that's slower and has less power than the previous year.

One car testing magazine/outfits just got 13 mpg in a TRD Tundra.Thats an improvement? Lets go back to the 70s/80s...it wouldn't cost as much to get the same 13 mpg in the very end.
