Auto Dealers Travel to Nation's Capitol

July 19, 2007

New car and truck dealers from across the country are set to meet with key members of the House of Representatives in support of efforts to enact reasonable increases in the national Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard. Dealers are urging their Representatives to support a bill, H.R. 2927—the Hill-Terry CAFE alternative, which would boost fuel economy 30 to 40 percent over the next 15 years.To meet the stringent Senate standard and other more radical proposals, automakers would be forced to significantly downsize their vehicles to those that carry less cargo, fewer people, and compromise safety. These unrealistic standards would significantly raise vehicle prices as new fuel saving technologies, such as hybrids or diesels, would add between $2,000-$5,000 to the cost of a vehicle; or simply eliminate certain models altogether.The Hill-Terry CAFE alternative boosts current standards to between 32 to 35 mpg by Model Year 2022.
