Coalition Encourages Fuel Economy Reform

WASHINGTON – This morning the American Energy Alliance and 14 co-signing organizations sent a letter to Deputy Administrator King of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in support of NHTSA’s issuance of a notice of proposed rule making (NPRM) for model year 2022-2025 Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for light-duty vehicles. Reconsidering these mandates will allow NHTSA and the EPA to better determine whether those regulations represent what’s best for all stakeholders involved – including the millions of American families whose vehicle purchasing options will be determined by CAFE regulations.

American Energy Alliance President, Thomas J. Pyle, made the following statement: 

Whatever the initial logic of the program, recent years have shown the CAFE mandate to be an anachronism. The U.S. is awash in oil, producing more than ever before in our history, and notwithstanding political turmoil in certain countries, there is no prospect of the world market running out of oil. Reconsidering the regulations for model year 2022-2025 vehicles is a start for NHTSA and the EPA to reevaluate the efficacy of the CAFE mandate as a whole. Substantive reform of the CAFE program would result in lower costs and more consumer choice for American families. We support all efforts towards this goal.
