Baloney! I've had an affordable 70+ mpg car since 2003. (It was built in 2000.) Main reason it was built (along with others like the Prius) was those regulations.

Could build similar or better today, regulations or no regulations. It's just that most Americans seem to think their manhood is threatened if they aren't driving around in something like a jacked-up F-350.
