Fuel Economy Standards Will Raise Car Prices by 2025

To achieve the government-mandated 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, vehicle prices should increase by an estimated $2,600.

The prict increase is the most cost-effective method to reaching government standards for improving engines that use gasoline. Automakers are encouraged to achieve 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, although there will be some exceptions and incentives for companies.
