A new amendment was recently passed in the House of Representatives and according to the news, it has a section that demonstrates that the government will be demanding the Transportation Department’s attention to the impact that the new 54.5 mpg fuel economy standards will have on jobs.
It has been reported that some are contesting this new standard as a possible inhibitor of job growth, and protests that it will make existing cars smaller and less practical. Despite the fact that the cost of the average car will rise an estimated $2,000 , or even $5,000 by some accounts, the amendment is projected to save nearly $2 trillion and benefit society on the whole in several ways.
Currently, the bill’s continued existence is not certain, as there is talk of removing it.
