Over on the Toyota Open Road blog, VP Communications Irv Miller has put a post calling on Congress to pass a comprehensive energy bill this session. In particular, Toyota wants the US Congress to pass the Hill-Terry fuel economy standards. That's the same proposal favored by the domestic automakers that would raise the fleet average to somewhere between 32 and 35 mpg by 2022. That's weaker than the bill passed by the Senate last June that would require 35 mpg by 2020. While it's not as tough as the Senate bill, it's likely to be the best compromise that can be achieved and Congress is unlikely to show enough backbone to establish a minimum price for fossil fuels anyway, so they might as well pass this.
