The point where emissions standards do 90% reduction in what is harmful is more than enough. Crosses the line where benefits don't pay off.

Federal fuel tax needs to again reflect maintenance repairs and upgrades. Hasn't changed since 1992. Pay for what you use. Etc.

Metro sprawl due to parents being forced out of city school districts and their dangers, and that women went to work to make up for the loss in their husbands income (and to afford that more distant home) after 1976, plus the general foolishness of using unsecured credit, have more to do with "gas guzzling" than vehicle design at this stage.

Long lasting efficient family transportation.
