Hopefully there a loophole where they say make an electric car that gets 50mpg so they will be able to offer a sport's car that is reasonable 17-20mpg. Sounds like the gas guzzling V8's day's are numbered.
And yet the government continues to subsidize gas

If they let gas costs operate at market value, more people would look to better MPG cars.

But I'm curious to see how quickly the same people that argue now about too much regulation would change their argument if gas went up to market value.
