Some consumer advocates want the Obama administration to raise Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards to 45 mpg by 2020.

 
So far, CAFE standards are set to reach 35.5 mpg in 2016, with a 40 percent increase in today’s standard.

The group proposes to further raise fuel economy requirements to 45 mpg by 2020, claiming that technologies available today will allow automakers to make it happen.


In addition, the Consumer Federation wants changed the party that sets the CAFE standards.

The standards are currently a joint effort between the EPA and the NHTSA.
