Last month, the U.S. Senate voted to raise the average fuel economy in cars and trucks.Â But the legislation still needs win approval in the House of Representatives, and then be signed by President Bush.Â If approved, it would mark the first increase in Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards in over 30 years. Â David Friedman is with the Union on Concerned Scientists, an advocacy group that has been working on raising the CAFÃ‰ standards.Â WMNF spoke with him today.
