The EPA is featuring a new tool online to help sell used cars. The agency teamed up with the Energy Department to create a tool that will generate fuel economy information for used cars that mimics the ones required on all new cars.
In the age-old debate of whether government regulations help or hinder economic growth, here's one example where more rules have helped create American jobs.
Compared with the rest of the world, the U.S. has long been known as the gas guzzler country--the nation of the widest roads, largest vehicles and the least amount of reliable mass transit for the geography.

A new study shows you don't have to sacrifice legroom for fuel economy.
Cars on American roads have improved their fuel economy. The people who drive them? Not so much.
After revealing they had exaggerated fuel-economy claims on approximately 900,000 vehicles in November, Hyundai and Kia rolled out a gift-card program to compensate customers for their extra gas expenses.
Even as cars become more fuel efficient, the cost of gasoline is still claiming a bigger percentage of the average American paycheck.

You know all about fuel-efficient alternatives to combat high gas prices. There are plug-in hybrids and electric cars, clean diesel and biodiesel. There's compressed natural gas and biomass and algae-based fuels. Now comes another development that makes those seem downright past their prime.
Automakers are examining every conceivable option as they stretch to make their cars meet 54.5 miles per gallon, per a government mandate, over the next 13 years. Surprisingly, electric vehicles might not play a prominent role in their plans.
Last week, Toyota stole headlines from Ford when the Camry sedan eked past the F-150 pickup to claim best-selling vehicle honors halfway though 2012. Today, it's Ford's turn to win back plaudits.
As automakers stretch to improve fuel economy, consumers will face all sorts of new technology including one that will take some getting used to because it shuts the engine down at red-lights.
A judge has overturned a ruling that allowed a California woman to collect nearly $10,000 from Honda in small-claims court because her vehicle received lower-than-advertised fuel economy.
The recent surge in gas prices across the country has brought similar surge in the number of car shoppers seeking fuel-efficient vehicles. The effect has been "dramatic," Ford spokesperson Erich Merkle said.
Since an improbable victory over Honda last week in a California small-claims court, a woman who sued over the disappointing fuel economy on her Civic hybrid says she has fielded hundreds of inquiries from disgruntled owners asking how they can follow in her footsteps.
We're guessing our regular readers have been to the EPA's Fueleconomy.gov site before, but if you haven't visited in a while, there is a lot of new content worth checking out. Most notably is a new page dedicated solely to electric vehicles.
