PepsiCo and FedEx among leading brands calling for truck efficiency

“While medium and heavy-duty trucks only make up 7 percent of all vehicles on the road, they consume 25 percent of the fuel used by all U.S. vehicles…Fuel costs are passed on to consumers, which can, in turn, affect a company’s competitiveness. Through everyday purchases, the average U.S. household spends $1,100 a year to fuel big trucks. Strong fuel standards for trucks can cut this expense by $150 a year by 2030.” Maybe they need to know about trains!!
