In a July 21 letter, each member of Michigan's congressional delegation, except Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), told President Obama they are “deeply concerned” about the prospect of a 56.2 miles per gallon by 2025 fuel standard for cars and light trucks. The standards would increase the fuel economy by 5 percent annually between 2017 and 2025. The Michigan delegation, citing a recent report from the Center for Automotive Research, a nonprofit research service, argued too stringent fuel economy requirements could eliminate 260,000 automotive manufacturing jobs and add as much as $10,000 to the price of new vehicles. The EPA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have been meeting with automakers to negotiate the next round of corporate average fuel economy standards for model year 2017 through 2025 vehicles, and those rules will likely be proposed in September.
