The author reflects on the plan of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to raise the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards as part of its effort to reduce the dependence on imported oil. It was noted that these regulations require automobile manufacturers to get an average of 27.5 miles per gallon (mpg) for passenger vehicles and 22.2 mpg for sport utility vehicles. But he mentioned that as fuel efficiency rose people will drive more and will make cars more expensive.
