New York state senate proposal would require gallons/100 mile stickers
New York state senator Daniel Squadron (D) recently introduced a bill that would require fuel consumption window stickers on new cars. The intent is to show consumers how much fuel would be saved by taking most inefficient vehicles off the road. Going from 12-15 mpg reduces saves nearly six times as much fuel over a given driving distance as an improvement from 50-60 mpg. The bill has been passed out of a senate committee in Albany but no corresponding bill has yet been introduced in the assembly.
