Heavy-duty vehicles—from local delivery vans to 18-wheel tractor-trailers—are essential for moving goods and people across the country, but they also consume 25 percent of the fuel used on U.S. roadways. With strong standards, we can ensure that our trucking fleet continues to provide these necessary services without today's oil consumption and global warming emissions.
As policy makers start discussions about the next round of efficiency and global warming emissions standards for our heavy-duty vehicle fleet, we have to get the word out that trucks can be 40 percent more fuel efficient and still deliver the goods.
You can help demonstrate the possibilities and potential benefits of cleaner trucks for oil use, fuel cost savings, and global warming emissions by sharing our graphic with friends and family.
We're working to build the buzz around this clean truck target on Twitter. That's why we need your help to spread the word:
