  1. U.S. Car Manufacturers Retreat on Fuel Efficiency

    Major auto makers supplying the U.S. market, having previously supported the government's effort to boost average fleet efficiency to 31.6 mpg by 2015 from 25 mpg today, are now having serious misgivings, according to a report in today's Wall Street Journal. Ford and Toyota are among those that had expressed confidence in their ability to meet the new goal but now are complaining about the scale and pace of what the National Highway Safety Administration proposes. Toyota is quoted as saying that the implementing regs are "substantially front-loaded" and "increase at a rate much greater than anticipated" by law.
