Today, UCS released "Drilling in Detroit,"  an analysis conducted jointly 
with the Center for Auto Safety.  The study finds that US automakers could 
produce a fleet of cars and trucks that get an average of 40 miles per 
gallon by 2012, and 55 mpg by 2020 (up from the current 24 mpg average), 
with no diminution of safety and performance.  This increased fuel 
efficiency would save consumers billions of dollars each year, cut 273 
million tons of annual GHG emissions by 2010 and 888 million tons by 2020, 
and create tens of thousands of new jobs in the auto industry.

The full report is available on the UCS website:  http://www.ucsusa.org
