President Barack Obama's recently announced plan to require automobiles to average 35.5 miles per gallon of gasoline by 2016 has evoked criticism from a variety of sources.
We agree that the plan is not perfect, but we think much of the criticism is misguided.
Obama's proposal would require cars to average 39 mpg and light trucks to average 30 mpg under a system that develops standards for each vehicle class. It would also require automobiles to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by about one-third.
