New U.S. fuel standards unveiled today would require automaker fleets to average 54.5 mpg by 2025. Pres. Obama says the new rules would lower U.S. oil use by 2.2M barrels/day over the next 15 years, and cut 6B metric tons of carbon pollution. Current standards require automakers to achieve 35.5 mpg by 2016.
