Faced with stringent fuel economy standards but cheap gas, automakers may seek to delay CAFE rules. What's the best way to reevaluate these emissions-cutting rules?
Self-driving cars are way more energy efficient than your average vehicle – but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll reduce carbon emissions.
Going down: Prices in Texas in November 2015.
With cheaper gas, consumers are buying fewer fuel-efficient vehicles – a step backwards on climate, energy security and upkeep of our highway and bridges.
