Obama Announcing New Fuel Efficiency Standard for Trucks

The amazing diminishing president


President Obama will announce on Tuesday that his administration will begin developing the next phase of tighter fuel efficiency standards for medium and heavy-duty vehicles, according to the White House.

The announcement, which the White House says Obama will make at a distribution center for the grocery chain Safeway in Upper Marlboro, Md., later this morning, follows his State of the Union pledge last month to set new fuel standards for trucks "so we can keep driving down oil and imports and what we pay at the pump."
