Increasing the efficiency of cars and trucks can play a significant role in reducing America’s dependency on foreign oil.

#1 If we raise fuel efficiency standards in American cars by one mile per gallon, in one year, we would save twice the amount of oil that could be obtained from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

#2 Raising it by 2.7 mpg would save enough to eliminate all the oil imports from Iraq and Kuwait combined

#3 Raising it by 7.6 mpg would save enough to eliminate 100% of our gulf oil imports into this country

Every 100 lbs you carry = 2% of a full tank of gas

I think it's easier to lose weight.
