There is not too much to say here other than if they can do it now, then why did they not do it back in the Seventies when they had a fictitious gas shortage, or was that just the Government, Car Companies and the Oil Companies working together to jack up the price.
If they can do this now, then there is some Rotten Eggs in the hay stack some where, if so then there are some corrupt companies and Politicians out there.
This is what happens when you have a President who OWNS the Car Companies.
I don’t think that any one goes to college to learn any thing other than how Party and Drink, because they sure did not get an Education, Oh I forgot they learned how to live off the Taxpayer through the Government handouts, don’t they call that corporate Welfare.

Obama to announce new fuel standards
By Andrew Restuccia
President Obama will announce the next round of vehicle fuel economy standards Friday, according to the White House.
The new standards for model year 2017-2025 cars and light-duty trucks “will result in significant cost savings for consumers at the pump, dramatically reduce oil consumption, cut pollution and create jobs,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

Obama will make the announcement at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The announcement comes as the Obama administration is reportedly nearing a deal with the country’s major automakers on the standards. The Associated Press reported Tuesday that the administration has proposed a 54.5 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025 standard.
Administration officials have held a series of closed-door meetings with the country’s major automakers in recent weeks to negotiate the standards.
The Detroit News reported Wednesday that major automakers like General Motors, Ford and Chrysler are expected to endorse the 54.5 mpg by 2025 plan, while Mazda has said it opposes the proposal.
The White House had originally floated a 56.2 mpg by 2025 standard. The proposal came under fire from the Michigan congressional delegation last week. The lawmakers argued that the initial plan was “overly aggressive and not reasonably feasible.”
The tighter fuel economy rules will build on the administration’s 2012-2016 vehicle standards.
