The message here is great: The White House isn't going to do dick for environmental improvements, so these states are just going to take it upon themselves. Go blue states! One step towards the utopia where we finally cut the south loose and refuse to admit we ever knew them.

"the new rules will not apply to the largest SUVs like the Hummer H2, which manages only 10 miles to the gallon" bastids.

Yeah... looking at how the new rules are structured, it's pretty much "the bigger the car, the lesser the mpg requirement".

I fail to see the logic behind it. New model not efficient enough? No problem! Just put the motor in a BIGGER CAR!

Dubya will still find a way to fuck it all up anyway.

So basically - all of New England and the surrounding neighborhoods got tired of waiting. Makes perfect sense though - this is pretty much the most denseley-populated region of the U.S., so more people equals more fuel eaten up and more emissions in a smaller area. That's my first thought anyway.

I can vouch for the increase in costs mentioned in the article, though. This winter was projected to have a huge increase in costs (I don't recall how huge but I rememeber it was huge enough to mean a 200-dollar/month heating bill climb close to 300). Most of that can be attributed to rising fuel costs I'm sure, but either way if it's a question between a cleaner environment and an extra hundred bucks... that's a no-brainer!
