The benefits of reducing fuel consumptions don't stop there. CO2 emissions can be reduced by 230 million tons (metric) - the equivalent of taking out 34 million cars from our roads. Translated into money, this equals savings of $30 billion for citizens if gas prices are $2.25/gal. If gas goes to $4 a gallon, the new standards will save $70 billion.
