Forcing consumers to drive more efficient vehicles maybe isn'tthe best way to go about it. When gas prices force consumers into alternative vehicles than what they want, automakers will build what the consumer wants that also is more efficient. Free market?
Considering that the average Joe doesn't seem to look at fuel-efficiency as a valuable asset in a similar proportion to what Europeans, Asians and Latinos do, CAFE alone won't lead to a change in this cultural aspect.
