"Highway Agency Moving Toward New Alt Fuel Rules"

"The Obama administration is moving forward with another fuel efficiency rule that would cost automakers more than $14 million each year, according to government estimates."

"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced Wednesday it is considering a new rule that would require car manufacturers to indicate which vehicles can operate on alternative fuels and explain which alternative fuels they can use, such as ethanol, biodiesel, vegetable oil, hydrogen or electric batteries.

The NHTSA said the rules, which come from the Energy Independence and Security Act, would help move the nation toward energy independence."
