While we are happy to see a dip in gasoline prices at the pump, the burden on families remains high.
New findings show how cleaner cars on the road would not only provide relief from pain at the pump, but also from the other problems associated with our addiction to oil.
As hot as this summer is shaping up to be, the last thing we need is extra fuel emissions from cars heating our atmosphere.
The Obama administration is close to finalizing fuel efficiency standards for cars and light trucks that achieve a 54.5 mpg standard by 2025.
A new Environment Ohio report shows if our cars met those standards today, we would slash Ohio's oil dependence by 19 million gallons and cut our global warming pollution by 5.4 million metric tons this summer alone.
With an average saving of $510 per family on gas, you could afford that trip with the family to beautiful places such as Lake Erie or Hocking Hills, all the while reducing pollution that endangers their very existence.
We should applaud the president for proposing this historic step forward and encourage him to finalize the standards expeditiously.
