Bi-partisan effort on fuel economy

A bipartisan group of US senators -- unfortunately, including neither of Wisconsin's -- are sponsoring a new bill that would require all vehicles -- including SUVs -- to get 35 miles per gallon by model year 2017. Feinstein says the bill, if passed, would result in the saving of 2.5 million barrels of oil per day by 2025, and 420 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions by 2025. What a great idea. Wonder how long it will take the Bush Administration to come out in opposition.
