There’s good news in your gas tank.
The EPA reports that gas mileage for 2017 cars (the numbers are always one year behind) was the best ever. Cars, trucks, SUVs – put ‘em all together and the average mpg for everything that rolls was 24.9 (and the estimates for last year look like even better mileage for 2018 models).
Want more good news? Not only was mileage up, but emissions were down (if you’re a numbers person, that “adds up” to a decrease of 3 grams of CO2 per mile. That number is also expected to go down again by even more when the 2018 totals are in.).
