The author reflects on the implications brought by a legislation that allows increases in federal fuel-efficiency standards for automakers, light trucks and standard utility vehicles in the U.S. He notes that senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow tried to stop the regulation by arguing that the standards were too stringent. He adds that upon approval of the bill, the nation's big three automobile makers have been complaining about it.
