STATEMENT: CAP’s Greg Dotson on EPA Decision to Keep Vehicle Carbon Pollution Standards

Washington, D.C. — Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, announced that it plans to keep in place the vehicle tailpipe carbon pollution standards it set for model years 2022 to 2025. Greg Dotson, Vice President for Energy Policy at the Center for American Progress, released the following statement:

Over the past eight years, the Obama administration has worked to make U.S. automobiles cleaner and more efficient, a win-win for consumers and the climate. Today, the EPA affirmed what the record clearly shows: The vehicle efficiency standards are working and will continue to reduce pollution, cut oil use, and save drivers money at the gasoline pump well into the future.
