A new technical report on US fuel efficiency targets says the vehicle fleet may fall short of a goal of 54.5 miles per gallon. Senior editor Brian Scheid parses the key points of the report and talks with Sam Ori, executive director at the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago, Joshua Linn, a senior fellow at Resources for the Future, and Kevin Book, managing director at ClearView Energy Partners, about whether low oil and gasoline prices are undermining fuel efficiency targets. Also, Brian’s dad, Warren Scheid, stops by to talk about his best ways to improve the fuel efficiency of your car.
