The United Auto Workers union is happy about the EPA’s final rules on fuel economy for vehicles and greenhouse emissions. UAW President Bob King says the new standards will propel the auto industry forward. He says the standards provide certainty for manufacturers in planning their investments. The UAW says the new standards cap a remarkable set of achievements by President Obama to save the domestic auto industry and put it on the path of future prosperity. A 2012 Blue Green Alliance study found that these CAFE standards rules will create 570,000 new jobs by 2030, largely because consumers will spend less on fuel and more on other goods and services.
