Obama Lauds Fuel-Efficient ‘Super Truck’

by Andrew Johnson

President Obama’s latest effort to pick up minor victories via executive action came Tuesday when he announced new EPA regulations to improve fuel efficiency for trucks by March 2016. Speaking at a Safeway in Maryland, the president heralded the supermarket chain’s “super trucks” for reducing costs and pollution.

The president also announced $200 million worth of tax credits to prompt investment and research into increasing fuel efficiency.
