President Obama’s EPA is at it again, proposing costly new regulations that will drive up the cost of everything for everyone. This time it’s regulations on truckers.
The Obama administration on Friday proposed tough new standards to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide pollution from trucks and vans, the latest move by President Barack Obama to address global warming.
The new rules are designed to slash heat-trapping carbon emissions by 24 percent by 2027 while reducing oil consumption by up to 1.8 billion barrels over the lifetime of the vehicles sold under the rule.
Oh sure, right, this is just great news, unless you happen to be one of those people who buy things shipped on trucks.
