As you may remember, the Obama Administration called for the first-ever fuel efficiency standards for heavy-duty vehicles back in early 2010. By October of 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had whipped together proposed fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions guidelines for on-road 3/4-ton and 1-ton trucks, vans, buses, semis and so on with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 8,500 pounds or more. This proposal is about to get real.

The White House has announced that President Obama will reveal the finalized fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions guidelines for heavy-duty vehicles on Tuesday during a visit to Interstate Moving Services in Springfield, VA.

The standards will apply to model year 2014 through 2018 medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. The EPA teamed with the Department of Transportation (DoT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on the joint standards.

President Obama to Travel to Interstate Moving Services in Springfield, Virginia

WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, August 9, the President will travel to Interstate Moving Services in Springfield, Virginia, to announce first of their kind fuel efficiency standards for work trucks, buses, and other heavy duty vehicles. The new standards will provide American businesses, who operate and own these commercial vehicles, tens of billions of dollars in fuel savings, and will dramatically reduce oil consumption and cut pollution.
