    "Congressional Democrats reached a compromise late Friday to boost automobile fuel economy by 40%, clearing the way for a House vote probably next week on an energy bill that Democratic leaders would like to send to President Bush before Christmas.

    The agreement came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reached an accord with Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., a longtime protector of the auto industry that dominates his home state, to ease the impact of the new fuel economy requirements.

    "A compromise has been reached on automobile fuel efficiency standards," Dingell announced in a statement.

    Automakers would be required to meet an industrywide average of 35 miles per gallon for cars and light trucks, including SUVs, by 2020, the first increase by Congress in car fuel efficiency in 32 years."

    Big deal, by 2020? Why don't they make it 2050? Might as well.

    Bush will veto it anyway, oil companies dictate administration policy.

    I'm sure Japan will appreciate Lil' Dumbya's execution of the U.S. auto-industry. :rolleyes:
