The EPA is supposed to protect the environment. Instead, they usually are going around making business owners lives difficult by placing unnecessary and unfruitful burdens on their shoulders.

In 2012, the EPA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration adopted rules requiring the nation’s car and light-truck fleet to average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The EPA agreed to review the target in 2017 to determine whether it was still feasible.
The Obama administration couldn’t wait till then and rubber stamped the new fuel regulations a mere week before Trump’s inauguration.
Can you believe it? While the United States has plenty of oil and natural gas (assuming we were allowed to actually use it) the EPA is still trying to force Americans into using less gasoline than we currently need.
With the global warming scam being discredited more and more by the day, the EPA is finding it hard to find ways to (Redistribute the wealth) err I mean “Protect the environment.” Obama hoped that he could use the EPA to further weaken the economy after he left office. He was wrong!
President Trump sees through the bull and is going to help American business get back on their feet. One way Trump is doing this is by fighting unnecessary burdens like the EPA mpg regulations.
If these regulations are not feasible, they could cripple the trucking industry and leave thousands of Americans out of a job. Advancement in technology cost money.
In a free market, businesses already want to reduce costs as much as is possible. If it were reasonable for them to improve their engine design, the trucking companies would already be doing simply to reduce stops, improve travel times, and increase profit.
While it is common sense to keep the environment clean and improve fuel efficiency, artificially influencing the market via government regulations will only do more harm than good.
Thankfully President Trump is a president of the people who will fight back against the leftist hordes who seek to tear down the system with government regulations.
