The President is issuing an executive order to make the regulations for fuel efficiency in trucks more stringent.
"The president's initiative is an important step driving America toward a cleaner energy future. Strong heavy truck efficiency standards will not only cut carbon pollution that fuels climate change, but also save consumers money every time they go to a store and save truckers money at the pump," Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, told The Detroit News.
It is expected that the 2011 truck rules will save the auto industry $50 billion in fuel costs and will only cost $8.1 billion in investment.
