President’s Administration Pushes for Higher Fuel Efficiency

New Rule will apply to vehicles manufactured from 2023-2026.

This week, President Biden and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced new federal fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles manufactured in 2023 through 2026. The rules will gradually increase efficiency standards toward the goal of 40 miles per gallon of gasoline by 2026. These standards are 25% higher than the prior administration’s goals.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan said of the new rules, “We are setting robust and rigorous standards that will aggressively reduce the pollution that is harming people and our planet – and save families money at the same time.” He also noted that these rules were one step toward the ultimate goal of an “all-electric, zero-emissions transportation future.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his environmental advisors to seek God’s guidance as they promote high fuel economy.
  • That EPA Administrator Regan would have wisdom as he addresses pollution. 
  • For the president’s administration as they seek to resolve climate issues.
