Affordable Mobility: A Roadmap to Energy Efficiency
44 Independence Avenue SW
Washington, DC 20515
Affordable transportation is an essential part of the American economy. Most forms of transportation rely on fuel consumption, and leading the conversation in keeping transportation costs low, while creating economic sustainability, is fuel efficiency. However, some economists say that new fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles sold in America have costs of their own, and will benefit the environment less than a straight tax on gasoline, which leaders from both sides of the aisle have ruled out.
What is the collective increase in vehicle cost related to fuel economy increases, safety mandates, and other direct regulatory burden? What will be the infrastructure needs of emerging advanced technology vehicles, such as fueling stations? What does the impact of the prevailing price of gasoline and diesel have on the adoption of new technology? National Journal convened a policy summit that offered a 360-degree view on these topics with experts from the Administration, automakers and other key Washington players.
