You Said It: How Fuel Efficient Are You?

Dearborn residents talk hybrids, electric cars and gas guzzlers.

Last week, Ceres–a national coalition of investors, environmental groups and other public interest organizations working with companies to address sustainability challenges–announced results of a poll of 800 likely Michigan voters on the subjecte of fuel efficiency.

Their findings? The majority of voters support having a 60 mile per gallon fuel standard in place by 2025.

As the government works toward decisions on the future of fuel efficiency in America, we asked Dearborn residents how fuel efficient they are, and how much they care about the issue.

60mpg? its gonna take a lot of work but I think Detroit automakers can do it. If not, the Japanese will step up to the plate again. I tell you what, I could really use a car that gets 60mpg today! I was horrified to hear that the Republicans want to shave money from fuel efficiency research in their budget hack-and-slash.
